From snow to water, from dirt to highway, powersports participants include at least 21 million Americans every year. And as more people get involved each year, the growing number of people enjoying and appreciating it are encouraged to celebrate National Powersports Month! 

History of National Powersports Month

The thrill of riding out in the open air really can’t be beat! With the wind flowing, water spraying, or snow blowing, being out on a powerful vehicle that allows for feeling the freedom of the great outdoors can be an incredible experience. Powersports offers invigorating fun while engaging with nature.

National Powersports Month was founded by National Powersports Auctions (NPA) a few years ago with the purpose of drawing attention to the fun and excitement that can come from engaging with powersports. Recognizing that powersports can come in all shapes and sizes, this event is meant to show some love for the sports as well as the riders and passengers who enjoy them.

One inspiration behind National Powersports Month is to encourage Americans to get out and enjoy the great outdoors whether through racing or simply for recreation. And if they can do that on a motorcycle, all-terrain vehicle (ATV), personal watercraft or some other motorsport machine, then that’s even better.

Another important part of this month is to encourage individuals to become more educated on the safety measures and practices that allow everyone to enjoy National Powersports Month with safety!
