Less than 24 hours remain before the 2009 SCCA Pro Racing Volkswagen Jetta TDI Cup Champion is crowned, and the drivers took to the track today at Road Atlanta for the final practice and qualifying sessions of the season…..

…..The two guest drivers joining the series at Road Atlanta this weekend got their first taste of Jetta TDI Cup action today. Journalist Jeremy Shaw led the way with a best time of 1:43.701 (88.112 mph). Meanwhile, Aerosmith guitarist, Brad Whitford, had a best lap of 1:51.355 (82.115).

“I’ve done some racing in the past, but today was a totally different experience for me,” Whitford said. “During the first session, I just wasn’t comfortable, but thanks to the help of the other drivers and the series instructors, I was able to make some big strides in qualifying and had a lot of fun in the car. I wasn’t nearly as quick as some of these young guns, but I was able to stay on track for the most part and didn’t ruin anyone else’s day, so I consider today a success.”
