EPA Backs Off Auto Racing Rules

Regulations stopped [1], for now.

The Environmental Protection Agency on Friday backed off a proposal that Republicans contended would have banned the conversion of street vehicles into racing cars.

In an email to congressional staffers Friday obtained by theWashington Examiner, Carolyn Levine, team leader in the EPA’s Office of Congressional Affairs, wrote that the agency’s greenhouse gas emission standards for medium and heavy-duty engines and vehicles will not contain the proposed language that could have banned racing vehicles.
