West Virginia Gov. Jim Justice recently signed legislation into law that will create the West Virginia Motorsports Committee. The committee will be tasked with aiding the development of racing events and facilities throughout the state.
“This committee will seek opportunities to promote economic growth and manufacturing jobs related to motorsports,” according to SEMA Action Network (SAN). “The new law marks a major step towards the expansion and preservation of racing in the state. It also recognizes the important economic and civic value that additional motorsports can provide.”
