Jetta TDI Cup Finale Set for Petit Le Mans Weekend at Road Atlanta
Drivers Race Clean Diesel Vehicles Toward $100,000 Prize

BRASELTON, Ga. (Oct. 1, 2008) -- Road Atlanta will host the final race of the inaugural Jetta TDI Cup season this weekend. One of 30 amateur drivers will be crowned the first Jetta TDI Cup Champion and receive a check for $100,000 to further his professional racing career.

The race is scheduled to take place on Saturday, Oct. 4, at 9 a.m. (EDT). Rookie driver Josh Hurley, Cooper City, Fl., is the current point leader, but with only a small margin separating the top drivers, and a large sum of money on the line, competition at Atlanta is guaranteed to be fierce.

"We've had an unbelievable season with these drivers who have shown amazing skill and dedication to this motorsport series," said Clark Campbell, motorsport manager, Volkswagen of America, Inc. "The idea of racing clean diesel vehicles has been embraced at every track we've visited and our drivers have given spectators a show with thrilling races at every turn. With a different winner at each race thus far, the points spread is extremely close and will only increase the excitement of our final race this weekend."
