If last Monday’s announcement that the EPA (Environmental Protection Agency) proposed a regulation to prohibit the conversion of any street-driven vehicle into a racecar left you feeling helpless, here’s a link to petition the White House against the proposed EPA regulation, and fight back.
Here’s a quick refresher of what the proposed regulation is about. SEMA has issued a press release informing the public that the EPA is aiming to make it illegal to convert automobiles originally designed for on-road use into racecars, even though such conversions have been done since the dawn of the automobile – it’s called improving the breed.
Under the EPA’s proposed rule, it would also be illegal to sell any performance-related products for those cars. The EPA’s proposal would have a devastating impact on motorsports since many types of racing rely on production vehicles that have been modified for use strictly at the track.
In recent affairs, SEMA battled proposed legislation to register all racecars. Isn’t there another group of enthusiasts that say registration is the first step to confiscation?
Now is your chance to voice your opinion and protect our beloved American hobby! Follow the link below to the official petition, put forth by the SEMA Action Network and protect the right to build racecars.
Ask the EPA to Withdraw its Proposal Now!
