Foremost Insurance Pegram Ducati’s Larry Pegram qualified sixth for this weekend’s AMA Pro American Superbike races at New Jersey Motorsports Park.

Larry’s flying lap time nearly landed him a spot on the front row at the circuit’s first-ever Superbike races. Larry’s Superpole lap – 1:22.142 – was just 0.3 seconds from third for the Ducati 1098R-mounted racer.

6th – Larry Pegram Speaks…

"It went okay but it was one of those deals," said Ohio native Pegram, winner of three 2009 AMA Pro Superbike races. "We were just fractions of a second away from second place but that was good for sixth today because the field is so tight. I made a couple of slight mistakes we could see on the data but it was a good lap. I think we’re good for the race but I have some questions about how easy it’s going to be to pass here. We’ll see tomorrow. The plan is to get a good start and get goin’."

The Saturday Superbike race begins at 3:00PM local time.
