With three competitors in GTS1, each one of them was sure to stand on the podium, however only one of them could become the National Champion. That honor went to Charles Buzzetti in his Porsche 924s sponsored by John Milledge Engineering. After a long race Buzzeti became the 2010 NASA GTS1 National Champion. Second place went to Christopher Allen sponsored by TRE Motorsports and Stokes Tires. Third place went to Scott Bove driving his number 124 Porsche 944 sponsored by Autobahn Premier Service.
Vali Predescu, sponsored by Euromastercars dominated GTS2 all weekend by sweeping the national championships earning victories in both qualifying races and the national championship race in his Porsche Boxter. Brad Waite, sponsored by Steinel’s Autowerks, gave it his best shot but had to settle for second place in his Porsche 944 S2. Third went to Ian Cole, who moved through the field and nabbed the final podium spot in his Volkswagen GTI sponsored by Autobahn Premier Services.
Probably one of the most dominate class winners of the 2010 NASA National Championships was Jay Matus. Matus crushed the competition in both qualifying races, then during the national championship race he ran away from his class by three seconds per lap to become the 2010 NASA GTS3 National Champion in his Porsche 996 sponsored by Viking Extreme Motorsports. Second place went to Gregory Dalgam driving the number 631 BMW M3 sponsored by Ultimate Auto Works. Third went to hard charger Doug Grande sponsored by One Grande Racing.
Jeff Amos won both qualifying races and started on the pole for the 2010 NASA GTS4 National Championship race. However, it was the girl in the group who came from behind to win the GTS4 championship race. Alexandra Sabados driving a vintage 1974 Porsche 911 RSR, sponsored by Frenetic Racing crossed the line first becoming the 2010 NASA GTS4 National Champion. Second place went to Rick Barrett sponsored by Barrettheritage.com in his Porsche 911. The final podium spot went to Amos.
The qualifying races for GTS5 were all over the place making this championship race a possible win for any of the competitors. Robert Prilika came out strong at the beginning of the race but then spun at Wind Up corner. This opened the door for Chad Nelson, sponsored by Ravenswave Recordings, to run away in his Porsche. When the checkered flags dropped it was Chad Nelson who became the 2010 NASA GTS5 National Champion. Second place went to Gilbert Galle in his Porsche 911 GT3. The final podium spot went to David Leyvas, in his number 10 Porsche 997, sponsored by Diversified.
