As a reminder, Summit Racing Equipment’s Made in the USA identification project is underway. Your response is required by 9/30/2017 in order for us to properly indicate in print which of your products meet the standards as outlined. However, please feel free to respond as soon as possible...products on SummitRacing.com are updated as soon as the information is processed.
Also, please note that all products indicated as Made in the USA must have a United States Country of Origin (COO) code. If there is a discrepancy, that part will be indicated as "No" and you will be contacted.
The original Made in the USA identification project instructions are below for reference. Your timely response is appreciated. Thank you for your cooperation and for your continued support.
Made in the USA Compliance
Choosing products that are made in the USA is a priority for many enthusiasts in this industry. As such, advertising that products are made in the USA can increase sales and customers' loyalty to your brand. It has been our goal to tell customers when products are made in the USA. However, we also want to make sure we are providing accurate and consistent information.
You may know of various standards for Made in the USA labeling. In order to comply with the most stringent standards, Summit Racing Equipment will follow those outlined in the California Senate Bill 633. For more information: http://leginfo.legislature.ca.gov/faces/billNavClient.xhtml?bill_id=201520160SB633
How to participate…
In order to correctly label your products as Made in the USA (beginning with the January/February 2018 Catalog), we need the following information by 9/30/2017:
- Completed indemnification document. This acknowledgement must be signed before we can label your products as Made in the USA (in print or online). This can be found in the Documents area of Summit Racing's B2B website.
- An Excel list of sellable SKUs with a Yes, No, or Null response. This list should include all of your sellable SKUs (including stocking, dropship, and special order items). Response of Yes indicates that the SKU meets Made in the USA standards as outlined in the California Senate Bill 633. (These are listed in the Indemnification document, or follow the link above for more information.). Response of No means the SKU does not meet standards. Null/Blanks will be treated as a No response.
- All SKUs with a Yes response must also have a United States Country of Origin. A discrepancy will result in a Null value and you will be notified so you can review and correct pertinent information. No Made in the USA information will be published on items with a discrepancy.
This list should include all of your sellable skus, whether it is a stocking item, dropship, or special order item. A complete list of your product offering can be found on the report section of the b2b website, titled, "Made in USA". Simply update the "Status Needed" column and return your worksheet along with your signed Indemnification document via our file upload tool under the category of "Made in the USA". Once these two documents are received we can market your product appropriately.
Please note, both of the above criteria must be provided. If one of the items is missing or incomplete, we cannot list your products as Made in the USA. As of 10/1/2017, Summit Racing Equipment will remove any Made in the USA labels (text and/or icons) on your products in print and online.
If you would like a copy of the signed indemnification document, please contact Chip Tietze, Summit Racing Equipment Purchasing Manager, at CTietze@SummitRacing.com.
We understand that sourcing can change from time to time. If your product(s) no longer meets the standards as outlined in California Senate Bill 633, it is your responsibility to notify Summit Racing Equipment as soon as the product becomes non-compliant. It is imperative that we remove all Made in the USA labels immediately.
If you have any questions about the standards, please contact Matt Gabelman, Summit Racing Equipment Product Compliance Advisor, at MGabelman@SummitRacing.com or 330-633-2611.
Thank you in advance for your participation. We look forward to hearing from you.
Arlington Texas News
We have had many manufacturers and sales reps ask about a grand opening show for our Arlington facility. We will not be holding a large-scale show (like Super Summit) at this location in 2017. While the new location is coming together nicely and on schedule, our primary objective is to have it open and running flawlessly so we can continue to sell parts and represent your brand to the best of our ability. We are planning to have a show in 2018, which will coincide with Summit Racing Equipment's 50th Anniversary. As soon as the 2018 show schedule is available, we will let you know. Thank you for your interest and your continued support. We are excited to see this new facility come together and look forward to hosting events there.

Summit Racing has new functionality which automatically allows small parcel shipping information that we receive from UPS to update most drop ship order status' within our system.
As a result, small-parcel single item / single quantity drop ship orders will no longer require ASN and shipping information to be entered if:
1. Orders are shipped via UPS using the UPS Summit Racing shipper number.
2. The Summit Racing PO number is entered into the UPS "Reference 1" or "Reference 2" fields.
•All other drop ship orders will appear on the B2B site and require ASN and shipping information.
•Order acknowledgements and future ship notices must still be maintained.
**We encourage you to ship our small parcel drop ship orders via UPS, use the Summit Racing shipper number, and reference our PO number. Doing so will significantly reduce the amount of work required to maintain drop ship ASN and shipping information.**
