5th – Larry Pegram Speaks…

"It’s a problem we’ve had before this year in that I made a little mistake in Superpole," said Larry. "We lost some time and it cost us the front row but we’re still excited about our chances this weekend. We’d been fighting for grip all weekend and we got the bike better for Superpole, but that little mistake cost us. We’ll come back tomorrow morning and try to keep improving. We’ll look to get a good start in the race and fight with the lead group and hopefully for the win. We’ve done well lately and I’ll do my best to give a good result to all the Ducati fans here at the track."

Saturday’s race begins at 3:00PM local time, with same-day television coverage on Speed.
