“Motorsports has a long history as an American tradition, and yet the industry is at great risk,” said David Miller, NCMA executive director. “Working with PRI and the entire motorsports community, we will be able to make our voices heard and protect the hobby well into the future.”As part of the EPA’s National Compliance Initiative, aftermarket parts businesses are being targeted and jeopardized. Companies are being fined and risk being shut down. The RPM Act is a bill that will protect the racing industry by clarifying that it is legal to convert street vehicles into dedicated race cars, and it ensures that motorsports parts businesses can legally produce, market and install racing products. 
The bipartisan bill was recently introduced in the US House of Representatives by Rep. Patrick McHenry (R-NC), with Rep. Richard Hudson (R-NC) serving as the lead Republican cosponsor. Senator Richard Burr (R-NC) is serving as the lead sponsor of the RPM Act in the US Senate and is working closely with the Senate Environment and Public Works Committee to position the bill for reintroduction and passage in 2021.

According to SEMA's Guide to Government Regulation of Emissions-Related Aftermarket Parts, it's up to aftermarket parts manufacturers to obtain certification - in the form of a CARB EO number - that their parts don't fall afoul of the Clean Air Act's requirement not to tamper with emissions controls.
Generally, any product that affects air flow into or out of the engine, impacts the containment or delivery of fuel or affects the functionality of an emissions control system or device must demonstrate emissions compliance to be considered legal for street use. That includes but is not limited to intake systems, exhaust components, tuning products, inter-coolers, turbos and superchargers.
In addition, SEMA warns that selling any aftermarket parts with the disclaimers "for off-road use only" or "for racing use only" is "essentially meaningless... if the part can be installed on a highway vehicle."

I can understand EMISSION COMPLIANCE on late vehicles but not allowing a vehicle to be converted to off-road race usage is a little too much. The car could not be tagged again until brought into compliance with state vehicle law and emissions compliance for the model year.

About the only logical way to stop all of this would be to form a PAC and buy off CONGRESS as does the rest of the world.
