Regular readers will already be familiar with the happenings of the 2008 Volkswagen Jetta TDI Cup season; we've been bringing you updates throughout the year on the drivers, the races and, of course, the cars. The race versions were outfitted with 170hp 2.0L TDI engines and six speed DSG transmissions, but the closest most drivers will be able to get to these versions is the $26,995 Jetta TDI Cup Street Edition.

VW must be pleased that the final episode of the eight-episode SPEED TV documentary on the TDI Cup comes the weekend after the Jetta TDI was named the 2009 Green Car of the Year. The doc that airs later today is an hour-long look at the entire season, focusing on how the drivers - all of them new to the scene - adapted to the new cars and grew throughout the series. Check your local listings for airtime.
