Sergio Pena leads the NASCAR Toyota All-Star Showdown in Irwindale after 200 laps. The 16-year-old from Virginia is making his first Showdown appearance. He won the pole and led the first lap of the race. Joey Logano led 99 of the first 100 laps. Pena took over the lead on Lap 106 and led from Lap 178 to 201.

Logano is in second place after 200 laps. He is followed by Jason Bowles in third, Matt Kobyluck in fourth and Andrew Myers in fifth.

Kobyluck won the Showdown in 2009 and is the only two-time winner of the event, which pits top drivers from the K&N Pro Series East and West.

Bowles, a driver from Ontario, is the reigning  West champion.
