    Be it enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives of the

SECTION 1. SHORT TITLE.

    This Act may be cited as the ``Recognizing the Protection of 
Motorsports Act of 2017'' or the ``RPM Act of 2017''.

SEC. 2. EXCLUSION FROM ANTI-TAMPERING PROVISIONS.

    Section 203(a) of the Clean Air Act (42 U.S.C. 7522(a)) is amended 
by adding at the end the following: ``No action with respect to any 
device or element of design described in paragraph (3) shall be treated 
as a prohibited act under that paragraph if the action is for the 
purpose of modifying a motor vehicle into a vehicle to be used solely 
for competition.''.

SEC. 3. DEFINITION OF MOTOR VEHICLE.

    Section 216(2) of the Clean Air Act (42 U.S.C. 7550(2)) is 
amended--
            (1) by striking ``(2) The term'' and inserting the 
        following:

                    ``(A) In general.--The term''; and
            (2) by adding at the end the following:
                    ``(B) Exclusion.--The term `motor vehicle' does not 
                include a vehicle used solely for competition, 
                including a vehicle used solely for competition that 
                was converted from a motor vehicle.''.
