Larry Pegram race 2 interview VIR

Foremost Insurance Pegram Ducati’s Larry Pegram had another strong run in the Sunday AMA Pro American Superbike race at Virginia International Raceway. Pegram and Ducati, winners of three 2009 AMA Pro American Superbike races, earned yet another top-five result. Larry charged towards the front, passing Mat Mladin and Blake Young in the middle portions of the 23-lap race. Larry challenged for a podium finish and eventually crossed the finish line on his Ducati 1098R in fourth.

Larry Pegram Speaks…

"We ran a good pace today and it was a fun, tough race," said Pegram. "I got there, I just couldn’t make the passes so I was waiting until the end and unfortunately had some problems with lapped traffic."

"Lap-time wise, I was pretty even with Ben (Bostrom) and Tommy (Hayden). I think we were on pace with them and behind Josh (Hayes) a little," said Pegram. "Fourth place is a good finish but we were hoping for a little bit more this weekend. This has historically been a tough track for us but we showed we can compete here and we’re looking forward to New Jersey now."

The season finale in New Jersey is August 4-6.
