WENATCHEE, Wash. — Motorsports marketing agency AVD Motorsports announced Wenatchee Valley’s Super Oval will present a fantastic night of racing on April 16 to bring attention to Performance Racing Industry (PRI) and its “Save Our Racecars” initiative.
The Save Our Racecars Night at Wenatchee, known as the fastest quarter-mile in the Northwest, will feature three classes of racing along with a fireworks show. In addition to on-track action, the event will highlight PRI’s Save Our Racecars campaign, a crucial initiative to preserve motorsports in North America.
Save Our Racecars Night seeks to grow interest and membership in PRI and to build grassroots support for the vital Recognizing the Protection of Motorsports (RPM) Act 2021 (H.R.3281/S.2736). The RPM Act is a bipartisan bill in the U.S. Congress that protects Americans’ right to convert street vehicles into dedicated race cars by clarifying in federal statute that it is legal to make emissions-related changes to a street vehicle for the purpose of converting it into a dedicated track vehicle used in motorsports competition. The bill also enshrines in law the racing industry’s ability to produce, market, and install parts and equipment that enable racers to compete.
“The RPM Act is essential to racing and we are determined to pass it this congress,” said Dr. Jamie Meyer, president of PRI. “We are thrilled to sponsor Save Our Racecars Night to highlight this important issue that affects all racers and racing enthusiasts. I ask racers and race fans to head to saveourracecars.com and urge your lawmakers to take action.”
PRI is leading the effort to pass the RPM Act, which is crucial to the future of motorsports.
Jerrod Sessler will serve as Save Our Racecars Night’s master of ceremonies. Sessler is a former NASCAR driver who is running for Congress in Washington’s Fourth District. He has taken up the cause of championing the institution of American racing and intends to advocate on behalf of the motorsports community in Washington.
