Summit Racing Equipment Needs Your Help....Protect the Future of Our Industry

Summit Racing Equipment has partnered with SEMA and PRI to help protect the automotive aftermarket and participate in its advancement.

Our industry needs us. Our ability to repair, maintain and modify vehicles and our freedom to choose the technology that powers them are on the line. Go to to learn more and speak up!

Additionally, here is some quick messaging about the legislation:

The REPAIR Act and Right to Modify protects your right to access data and tools you (or your shop of choice) need to repair, maintain and modify modern vehicles. Without the legislation, we're at the mercy of the manufacturers and dealer services to access systems for repair, reset electronics after modifications, and perform routine maintenance. Don't let your car's advanced technology lock you out of maintenance, repairs and mods!

Meanwhile, proposed regulations in California ban the sale of new vehicles with internal combustion engines by 2035 while favoring Battery Electric Vehicles (BEVs). Plus, the EPA's proposed federal emission standards feature a tight timeline and subsidies that essentially make production and purchase of BEVs the only option. Other technology will be stunted and BEVs will be our only choice whether we're ready or not. The Preserving Choice in Vehicle Purchases Act and CARS Act prevent these regulations in favor of developing low-emissions technology consumers want...not what we're forced to buy.
