VW Jetta TDI Cup Alumni to Compete in the Daytona 24 Race Weekend - Web Exclusive

Jan 26, 2010

It seemed like only yesterday Volkswagen started the Jetta TDI Cup which was sanctioned by the SCCA. Two years ago, several young hopefuls competed in the series to improve their driving skills and for a chance to sign with a professional race team. This weekend at the legendary Daytona International Speedway will show five alumni do battle on a competitive level. The drivers will be taking part in the Continental Tire Sports Car Challenge Fresh From Florida 200.

The green flag on the race falls on Friday, January 29 at 1:45 pm ET. The race will be broadcast on Speed-TV, February 13 at 7 pm ET.

Former Volkswagen Jetta TDI Cup drivers racing this weekend include:

Josh Hurley – The 2008 Jetta TDI Cup Champion is returning to APR Motorsport in 2010 to drive the #181 Volkswagen GTI. Hurley earned series “Rookie of the Year” honors driving for APR in 2009.
