    Could mean murder on Grassroots racing.

    Big Series shows will get around it though I'm sure.

    Unnecessary alarmisms IMO. While the clarification could do with more clarification, the between the lines read is that they're not changing their approach, so competition only, non-road legal vehicles don't have much to worry about.

    If it wasn't for the selfless crusaders for justice in the EPA, where would we be? Dead because of asphyxiation thats where.

    Oh, fuck the EPA. They're a bane on society with too much power and influence. They're fine in moderation, but when allowed to run rampant, they go waaaaay overboard to unnecessary lengths with preposterous regulations and mandates. They need to be taken down a few pegs, or several.
