Congressman Patrick McHenry introduces RPM Act of 2021





The U.S. Motorsports Association would like to thank U.S. Congressman Patrick McHenry for introducing the "RPM Act" (Recognizing the Protection of Motorsports Act of 2021, which permanently blocks attempts by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to regulate modified motor vehicles used for racing.

The USMA is headquartered in the 10th District of North Carolina, where Congressman McHenry serves. In the 10th District alone there are well over 100 Motorsports and Automotive Performance related businesses that could be adversely affected by the EPA regulation.


A recent study by the Motorsports Council of Pennsylvania showed that the Motorsports Industry in PA contributes a 2.5 Billion dollar economic impact serving 21,000 jobs.


Nationally, Racing contributes billions of dollars in economic impacts, supplies millions of jobs, feeds thousands of small businesses, and provides tremendous local community benefits. Racing also supports innovation and technology used by our military and to educate our future engineers.


Today's racers are environmentally conscious.


Manufacturers, sanctioning organizations, and racetracks implement strict environmental practices. Companies like Safety-Kleen & Clean Harbors specialize in the proper handling of fluids and chemicals involved in racing.


USMA supports the RPM Act. We will continue to offer Racing Industry expertise to Environmental Agencies and Members of Congress to identify environmental solutions, which advance the health of our environment, and foster continued business and job growth.

Washington - Today, Congressman Patrick McHenry (R, NC-1
