Foremost Insurance Pegram Racing Looks Forward After Tough Weekend in Daytona

Grand Rapids, MI (March 16, 2011) – Larry Pegram and the Foremost Insurance Pegram Racing team persevered through mechanical setbacks and an early crash in the AMA National Guard American Superbike series, held at Daytona International Raceway this past weekend. Mechanical struggles during qualifying placed Pegram ninth off the pole. He crashed during the first lap in race one but after a restart was able to work through the pack and finished seventh overall. Saturday's race saw Pegram and his BMW S 1000 RR passing the checkered flag in the sixth position, placing him sixth in overall point standings.

Pegram, along with his team and family, has recently gained mainstream notoriety courtesy of a new reality program, Superbike Family, which features the rider’s day-to-day life. The program began airing on Discovery HD Theater last month. “Daytona didn’t go exactly how I had hoped,” said Pegram. “But the BMW S 1000 RR is a fast bike and I feel like we’ve really got it dialed in now. We’re looking forward to the next race and I think this is going to be a great season.”

Not one to slow down, Pegram has moved to the Barber Motorsports park this week, along with the Foremost Insurance Tampa Bay Jaw Surgery AIM Autosport automobile racing team, to practice and test for the Star Mazda Championship series presented by Goodyear. Pegram raced in the series twice last year and plans to compete behind the wheel again in 2011.
