Pena, Revolution Racing on Pole for Toyota All-Star Showdown

MOORESVILLE, N.C. (Jan. 29, 2009) -- In his first competition in a NASCAR K&N Pro Series race car, Sergio Pena, driving the No. 4 Freightliner/Revolution Racing Chevrolet, captured the 21 Means 21 Pole Award presented by Coors Light for the NASCAR Toyota All-Star Showdown with a fast lap of 18.390 seconds (97.879 mph).

Pena earned his way into the event by competing in a qualifying race among his three teammates at Revolution Racing on Thursday evening. A run-away win in last night's qualifier allowed Pena a shot at competing on Friday.

Pena's pole run bested that of 2007 NASCAR Toyota All-Star Showdown winner -- and NASCAR Sprint Cup Series driver -- Joey Logano. Logano qualified second at 18.421 (97.715).

"I couldn't have asked for a better car tonight," said Pena. "Everything was just right for that run. Andy (Santerre) and the entire Revolution Racing team gave me an awesome car and I can't thank them enough for this opportunity."
