    Oakley’s professional skateboarder Rune Glifberg raced in the Volkswagon Jetta TDI Cup event at New Jersey Motorsports Park last Sunday. While the 2008 & 2009 X-Games Skateboard Park gold medal winner has driven at several racing schools, Sunday was the first time Glifberg competed in an auto race. The skateboarding legend earned a 21st place finish after turning in a solid performance.

He holds nine X Games medals, but until his win in the Skateboard Park competition last year, none of them were gold. If today’s performance was any indication, Rune Glifberg’s X Games bridesmaid curse is over.
