Larry Pegram Speaks…
"We had a good race today and I was pleased with the lap times we were able to do and how the Ducati 1098R worked. I think we were as fast as anyone on the track and the lap times showed that," said Pegram, who won earlier this year in Wisconsin."
"The problem is there’s only one real place to pass here, the end of the back straight. We struggled there a little bit, which is a surprise because we’ve had the fastest bike all year. I feel we could run anyone’s pace today. We’d gained back any ground we lost, but you’ve got to make some passes and we lacked just a little bit. I feel confident about the bike and the team. We’re looking forward to going to the next event in Kansas and racing."
