Joey Logano leads the NASCAR Toyota All-Star Showdown in Irwindale after 100 laps.

The 2009 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series rookie of the year started the race in second.

Sergio Pena, the surprise pole winner and a 16-year-old from Virginia, was in second place after 100 laps.

David Gilliland, a former Showdown winner, was third. He was followed by Eric Holmes in fourth and Sean Caisse in fifth.

Ryan Truex, the younger brother of NASCAR Sprint Cup Series driver Martin Truex Jr., had to start from the rear of the field because of an engine change. He was in 17th place after 100 laps.

The cars had to make a mandatory pit stop at the 100-lap mark of the race. The race is scheduled for 225 laps around the half-mile Toyota Speedway oval.
