Pegram talks Superbike race 1 results Topeka

Foremost Insurance Pegram Ducati’s Larry Pegram dominated the Saturday Kansas race and won his second AMA Pro American Superbike event of the year with a 2.184-second victory at Heartland Park Topeka. Mounted on a Ducati 1098R, "The Worm" motored off from his rivals, edging out to a lead of over four seconds in the opening laps to put his stamp on the event.

1st – Larry Pegram Speaks…

"For me, it’s validation. At Road America, we beat maybe the best guy out there in a straight-up fight. To do it again and win here in Kansas, it proves to me we can win and it certainly feels great to do it. I always knew at the bottom of my heart I could win races if I could get on a bike capable and this Ducati 1098R certainly is capable. It’s been a great machine since the day we picked them up at the dealership and began building them into race bikes. To win here at a track where there’s more than just a fast straight is good, too. The entire team is really happy with this win."

"I saw ‘four seconds’ on my board and I thought it was good," said Pegram. "We had a big enough gap where I could be fairly careful with lapped traffic. I think we would have been able to run a stronger pace if needed and we might tomorrow but it’s great to get another win today."

As the laps counted down, Pegram chose to run a more measured pace with such a large lead and took the flag in front of Ben Bostrom.
