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.
