Huge News: PRI Membership Program Now Open To Individuals – If You Love Racing In Any Form, THIS Is How To Protect It

There are moments in time when big things happen and it’s exciting to see them unfold right before you. This announcement from PRI is all of those things x1,000. Why? PRI has announced that they will now have an individual membership program, allowing racers, fans, enthusiasts, and gearheads of all stripes to band together in one cohesive unit to share our collective voice. This is a MASSIVE development for anyone who truly loves racing because it’s sure under threat from multiple fronts and one of the most effective and long lasting ways we can protect it is by working together to save tracks, venues, and limit government over-reach into our culture of competition.

Previously to this, PRI was a trade organization only and thy will continue to be that but by allowing individuals to become members, it is not simply manufacturers and businesses that are carrying the torch anymore. Now it’s us, too. Think of it this way. If there is some political work that needs to be done in Washington, is it more effective for the people doing the work to talk about the fact that they have a multi-billion dollar industry who’s interests they are representing or does it carry more weight when the person can talk about the industry and the MILLIONS of citizens they represent?

The growth of this membership program will not happen overnight. It will be arduous at times and it will be a process, but this is exactly the strategy that has worked for so many powerful groups of citizens who have stood strong for what they believe in and what their true passions are in life.

Here’s an excerpt from the release below and perhaps one of the most important paragraphs in the entire thing:

By joining the PRI Membership, individuals not only become part of the community to protect racing and gain a suite of benefits, but they also join forces with the newly formed Political Action Committee called the Performance Racing PAC. This new organization under PRI was recently established as a direct way to influence lawmakers and to protect the interests of the racing community. Now more than ever, racing and motorsports face challenges that must be addressed in a united effort to protect the rights of racers, racing businesses and the entire community.

Read the entire release from PRI here. This is huge news and for the first time, the millions of racing fans across America can stand and work as one cohesive unit!

Lastly, racing is a very segmented thing. PRI Membership knocks down all the walls. The drag racers and the road racers, the truck pullers and the stock car competitors, the motorcycle knee draggers and the monster truck drivers. Together we stand as a HUGE force that spans the country and many millions of people. Participants, enthusiasts, fans, and supporters of racing are all encouraged to join. The more people and genres of competition represented the stronger the organization will be.

We can’t wait to sign up.
