PEGRAM RACING TAKES THIRD AT ROAD AMERICA
The Leo Vince Foremost Insurance Ducati 848 makes the podium in the wet

Elkhart Lake, WI (7 June 2008) -- Larry Pegram of the Leo Vince Foremost Insurance Ducati Team took third place in the wet at Road America's AMA Formula Xtreme race this afternoon.

The Formula Xtreme race, which was restarted twice due to an accident and the arrival of rain, proved to be the most exciting of the day. After a difficult start on the wet asphalt, Larry quickly found himself leading the field around the Wisconsin circuit. An eight lap battle ensued on the damp track and despite racing on full wet tires, Larry managed to put the Ducati on the podium.

"I thought we could win this one for sure, my Ducati 848 was running strong," said Pegram. "I started to ride harder in the middle of the race but it was a bit too dry to push on wet tires. I just put my head down and fought Josh and Aaron to the finish."

Larry Pegram is now third in the championship, with a 26 point lead over Josh Hayes. The next round of the AMA Formula Xtreme Champioship will be at Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course August 2nd.
