With a lot of hype from the finale of the 2009 season, a lot newcomers came to Buttonwillow for a good start in the hunt for championship points. One of the newcomers includes Alex Cao who each received a very respectable 1st place in his series debut in Street class. This definitely puts the defending champion, Roger Lee, at odds with his 4th place finish. In the meanwhile, the current champion for the Modified class, Leonard Patterson, is no where to be found as newcomer Christopher Huang took 1st place also in his debut.
In contrast, Unlimited class had the usual suspects appear to face off for the debut round, but with the champion, Andrew Kidd was also nowhere to be found. That left Gordon Jennings and Sonny Watanasirisuk to do battle, with Gordon easily taking an important first win for his bid to be the fastest Miata driver in MC.
