Jetta TDI Cup: Josh Hurley wins at Portland International Raceway
A victorious Josh Hurley, 22, emerges from his VW Jetta TDI Cup car
after winning the race at Portland International Raceway.

After starting the previous two races in the pole position, Josh Hurley, 23, Cooper City, Fl., claimed first place at Portland International Raceway (PIR) today in the third race of the Jetta TDI Cup series. Starting from the second position in today’s race, Hurley raced ahead of 29 other clean diesel vehicles in the only race stop on the West Coast. Finishing second was Liam Kenney, 16, Sterling, Va., and Northwest driver David Jurca, 22, Federal Way, Wash., rounding out the top three.

“I am really happy with the win today, words can’t describe it. I was actually a little choked up on the cool down lap,” said Hurley. “To put the Gunther Volkswagen Jetta TDI up front really means a lot after getting two pole positions coming into here. I am absolutely ecstatic.”

With almost all drivers completing 20 laps, the exciting race was run mostly under green flag with multiple lead changes showcasing the talent of these up-and-coming drivers. The VW race series will continue its competitive run with the next race scheduled to take place at Lime Rock Park on August 16, 2008.
