Megenbier Wins VW Jetta TDI Cup Round Three
It was a close battle between Megenbier and Thompson, since Megenbier ran the fastest lap during Saturday's practice session, but got topped in qualifying by Thompson. In the race, Megenbier recovered by taking the lead on lap one and maintaining his position until he crossed the finish line.
"I felt good on the track all weekend, but last night after practice and qualifying, I spent a lot of time analyzing the car data that we had collected to put together a game plan for today's race," Megenbier said.
After his early mistake on lap one, Thompson was able to recover and secure a second-place finish, and Lendle rounded out the podium with a career best third-place finish. This is the first time in series history that an American, Canadian and Mexican driver have been featured on the same podium.
"It was a pretty good day, and I was obviously hoping to come out on top after starting from the pole. Timmy had a little bit more than me today, so I had to settle in and drive my race," Thompson said.
