The USMA Government Affairs Department has begun to activate an aggressive advocacy plan for 2022. The plan focuses on State and Local support for Grassroots Racing as outlined below.
In addition, our Third Annual Support Grassroots Racing Tour kicks off in February in Florida. Throughout the year the USMA will make stops at a number of different venues and businesses across America. Elected officials will be hosted at these venues, where they will be informed about the many economic benefits Motorsports provides.
2022 USMA GOVERNMENT AFFAIRS PLAN OF ACTION:
Continue to inform businesses, race tracks, and series about grants, loans, and other funding opportunities that become available throughout the year. This includes COVID relief dollars (still available), tourism funding, broadband and telecommunications grants (many available), rural development funding, and additional opportunities.
Host Motorsports Rally’s and Legislature Visits at Key State Capitols. At these visits we will be meeting with current Motorsports Caucuses and establishing new racing focused causes and committees.
Expand our councils and coalitions to recruit more racing leaders and advocates. USMA will continue to work side by side with these small focused groups to foster positive results for racing.
Support tracks and racing businesses in contacting their elected officials, inviting them to their facilities, and ultimately establishing permanent relationships between government and racing.
Support all advocacy efforts necessary to promote the passing of the RPM Act in Congress.
Leverage our economic impact research to uncover new benefits for racing with elected officials at the local, state, and federal level.
Be a resource for racing businesses, tracks, or series who are facing local, state or federal issues.
Most importantly, USMA wants to hear from you. Let us know if you need help with your local Government or have an issue with the State Government on any issue large or small. Our expert team is here to help. We are more encouraged than ever to continue the work of the USMA!

We look forward to hearing from you.
