The U.S. Motorsports Association has submitted a letter to the President of the United States, House Majority Leader Nancy Pelosi and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell requesting their support of small businesses related to motorsports in the Phase 4 stimulus package currently in congress, the organization announced.
The letter was submitted at the request of racing-related manufacturers, suppliers and race tracks, who are experiencing the hardships of the COVID-19 shutdowns, the USMA said in a statement.
“The USMA remains focused on the restart of racing and helping tracks navigate their local and state government, but with the season already more than half over we are equally turning our focus to financial relief for our impacted businesses,” the statement announcing the letter said. “We must ensure racing is heard at all levels of government. Some of the relief funding from Congress will filter down to the State and Local level. It is important we pursue all relief options available to the racing industry.”
