PEGRAM RACING PREPARES FOR PODIUM RETURN AT ROAD ATLANTA

Ducati rider Larry Pegram is set to continue Team Foremost Pegram Racing's podium success from round two.

Braselton, GA (2 April 2009) -- Team Foremost Pegram Racing has arrived and begun preparations for the third round of the AMA Pro Racing American Superbike Championship; to be held this weekend at the Road Atlanta road course in Braselton, Georgia.

Team owner and rider Larry Pegram is entering this weekend's doubleheader confident he can return his Ducati 1098 R to the podium and fight for race wins. Despite a major highside collision at Fontana's Auto Club Speedway two weeks ago -leaving him severely bruised- Pegram is upbeat about this weekend's races.

"The crash at Fontana hurt pretty bad," commented Pegram. "I guess you could say I made the podium in race two out of sheer stubbornness; as I was in pain the whole time. I'm pretty bruised up and haven't trained since, but I should be good to go once I get back on the bike tomorrow. The Ducati will be fast here so I'm planning on scoring as many points as possible to make up a few spots in the championship."

This weekend's races mark the series return to road courses after two consecutive superspeedway rounds. Qualifying begins tomorrow at noon; and both races can be seen April 11th at 10pm EST on SPEED.
