CUPERTINO, Calif (July 1, 2009) -- As the global racing community descends on California's Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca, Ducati's AMA star prepares to defend his recent Superbike victory.

This coming weekend marks the seventh round of the AMA Pro Racing American Superbike Championship; held in conjunction with the United States Grand Prix. Ducati Corse's MotoGP squad has flown over to participate in the World Championship event, enabling Pegram to shine in front of the 1098 R's Bolognese fabricators.

The past race, held in Elkhart lake Wisconsin, was an epic duel. When the dust settled, Pegram and the Ducati 1098 R beat Suzuki's Mat Mladin, only the second time anyone has done so this year. The Foremost Ducati squad had had a few weeks off to refresh their 1098 R's, and Larry is looking forward to a good performance at Ducati North America's second "home" track.

"The win at Road America has really boosted my own and the team's confidence. We are hungry to win more races and I hope the streak continues at Laguna Seca," commented Pegram. "Massimo Capanna and his crew have been busy preparing for weeks now, and I'm ready to race."

The AMA Superbike race will take place Sunday at 4:15, following Saturday qualifying at 1:00.
