The six lanes of Dan Mueller's Chesapeake Mile was the host track for MASCAR's Holiday event of the 2010 season. This was the first race for the Super Stock class on this track and the action was non-stop, all day. First up after qualifying and the round robin, was the B Main. Jeff Crabtree easily won with a dominating 555 laps, with Tom Bowman in second, and Dave Mueller edging his dad by 10 sections. In the A Main, Ronnie Jamerson set the pace initially with a 92 and Mark Smith and Joey Cassiba back 4 laps, Tim Keevin another lap back, and Bubba Milholen yet another back after the first 5 minute heat. Heat 2 saw Mark lay down a 97 with Joey next at 90 and the others loosing the pace. Heat 3, Mark continued on form to match Jeff from the B, Joey was struggling on the Red gutter, and Ronnie's ThunderCat suffering from a popped and twisted motor magnet leading to retirement. Joey was back on form as the rest of heats played out, but Mark was gunning for Jeff and ran a 97 in yellow and sealed the deal with an outstanding 93 in white. So bottom line, Mark Smith had 561 laps, Jeff Crabtree 555, Joey Cassiba 518 and Tom Bowman completed the extended podium with a 514, from the B Main.

The New Years race is January 8th, at Mark Smith's in Port Haywood, Va and the class is BeachJet.
