Pegram Ducati pumped for Superbike final

Foremost Insurance Pegram Ducati’s Larry Pegram will race this weekend in the AMA Pro American Superbike season finale at New Jersey Motorsports Park.

Pegram looks to top off a successful season in New Jersey, one that has seen him earn three victories during his return season to the Superbike class. While Larry has already made his season memorable with the unforgettable Road America shootout with seven-time AMA Superbike champion Mat Mladin and with his stunning Topeka double victory, he has two more chances to put the Ducati 1098R into victory circle this weekend.

The New Jersey Motorsports Park circuit is hosting their first AMA Pro American Superbike National this weekend. The 2.25-mile Thunderbolt Raceway course will be used. Pegram and the other top AMA Pro American Superbike teams tested at the circuit earlier this summer.

Larry Pegram Speaks…

"We tested at New Jersey and I think it’ll be pretty good," said Pegram. "Our pace has been competitive with the fastest riders at the recent races. We’ve won a few and at some of the others we had some issues but our race pace has been one of the best out there this year. In all honesty, VIR was going to be one of our worst tracks and our lap times were right there with everyone except for the guy who won both races and we weren’t that far off his times. The Ducati 1098R is a great bike and the team is working fantastic. We’re excited to wrap up the season in New Jersey and we want to end it the best way possible, of course."

The races will be televised on Speed TV. The Saturday race show beings at 7:30 PM EST and Sunday’s show will air at midnight EST.
