VW Jetta TDI Cup Round 4 Preview and Introduction of Live Timing

August 11, 2008

Federal Way, WA. – The fourth race in the competitive Volkswagen Jetta TDI Cup will take place on Saturday, August 12, at 10:30 a.m. as part of the NASCAR Camping World East Series weekend at Lime Rock Park. Series points leader David Jurca, Federal Way, Wash., will look to solidify his lead among the field of 30 racers driving the clean diesel vehicles. The previous three races have resulted in a different winner each time, proving how tremendously close the racing is in this field of young drivers.

“The race at Portland International Raceway was an incredible racing battle that demonstrated the talent of the young drivers as well as the solid performance of the Jetta TDI. ” said Clark Campbell, motorsports manager, Volkswagen of America, Inc. “We’ve seen the drivers skills greatly improve as they get more time in the clean diesel Jettas on the track. Now we look forward to showcasing the message about clean diesel racing to all the racing fans at Lime Rock Park this weekend. It is a great historic track that will suit the torque of our diesel motors very well.”
