"All trail-access decisions are political decisions"

The Trail Political Action Committee (TPAC) was founded as the first national non-partisan political action committee dedicated solely to championing responsible off-highway vehicle recreation on designated roads, trails, and areas on public lands through the electoral and legislative processes.
The TPAC tactical goal is to target key races using state-of-the art real-time analysis where there is a tough election and the pro-access candidate needs some extra support to help to defeat their opponent.
TPAC is needed to counter the anti-access special interests in Washington DC who have long ago figured that contributing to closure-oriented politicians is how they will accomplish their goal of restricting OHV access on federal lands.
TPAC is ready to stand in that political breach to stop the flow of anti-access politicians into the Capital. TPAC will work hard to reverse that trend so that pro-access legislators will exist as the majority in Congress and the White House.

SAN CARLOS, CA - An off-road racing champion and long-time supporter of efforts to protect trail access on public lands endorsed The Trail PAC today.  Chris Carter, president of Motion Pro in the San Francisco Bay Area, has been an industry leader in land-use advocacy since the 1980s.

Chris Carter, Founder of Motion Pro, states, “I believe that trail enthusiasts must be involved on every front in the fight to keep trails open for responsible OHV recreation.
Off-road voters must become informed and engaged in the electoral process because it is politicians who designate which areas are open or closed to motorized recreation.”

“I believe The Trail PAC is an important tool that should be added to the land-use tool box.  I am proud to endorse the efforts of TPAC to help elect politicians who will support
the trail community,” Carter concludes.
