Pegram and Ducati Top the Podium in Fontana

Cupertino, California

Cupertino, Calif. (March 29, 2010) - Foremost Insurance Pegram Ducati's Larry Pegram dominated Saturday's Auto Club Speedway American Superbike race- a thriller that came down to the last lap.

Mounted on a Ducati 1198R, Pegram battled the field from start to finish. The owner of the Foremost Insurance-backed team waited until the last two laps in order to make his move on Jake Zemke and Aaron Yates, and took home his first win of the 2010 season. It was a trouble-free race, and the Ducati rider didn't reveal his hand until the very end.

Pegram was set to continue his winning ways on Sunday until an unfortunate accident ended his race two early, while his Ducati was in the lead. Larry and crew are more motivated than ever to continue their fine form as preparations begin for the next round at Road Atlanta. The 1198R's next outing will be a test at Infineon Raceway later this week.

"I'm really excited to be back on top of the podium and in the hunt for the 2010 title. Auto Club Speedway has long been one of my favorite tracks, and I was really, really excited to finally get a win there. We should get in some good testing this week, and be ready to go come Road Atlanta," Said Pegram.

In Sunday's Daytona Sportbike race, Latus Racing- MotoCorsa rider Steve Rapp piloted his Ducati 848 to a solid third position, riding a strong race by using his 848's power to its fullest on Auto Club Speedway's long banking. The podium keeps Rapp fourth in the overall standings and in a strong position to gain momentum at Road Atlanta.
