Group E National Championship Race, 12:55 p.m. (45 minute race)
One of the largest fields at the 2010 NASA National Championships presented by Toyo tires was 944 Spec with 28 Porsches rolling toward the start/finish line waiting for the green flag to drop. Into corner 1 out in front was David Dirks in his red number 76 Porsche 944 sponsored by 944 Motorwerks. Dirks pulled away and never looked back. But behind him was Tyler Palmer in his lime green Porsche in an epic battle with Todd Bellwood, Charles Buzzetti and Scott Bove. Palmer eventually pulled away and left the rest of the mob of 944s to battle it out for third place. As the race continued on Palmer began to reel Dirks in. On the last lap, final corner, Palmer went for an inside pass on Dirks to go for the win but couldn’t get it done. David Dirks became the 2010 944 Spec National Champion with Tyler Palmer finishing second. Buzzetti, sponsored by John Milledge Engineering, finished third.
Eleven closely matched BMWs lined up for a standing start for the Spec E30 class race at the 2010 NASA National Championships presented by Toyo Tires at
