Fontana, CA (April 28, 2008) - Larry Pegram, of the LeoVince Foremost Insurance Ducati Team finished third overall in the third race of the season at a windy and newly named Auto Club Speedway in Fontana, CA.
Pegram started the race on the first row after qualifying in third with a lap time of 1:25.605. He took third at the start and was in a tight race with the riders in first and second for the entire race until some lapped traffic pulled him off his pace. At the finish line, Pegram was only 2.245 seconds behind the leader.
After the third round of the Formula Xtreme series Pegram is currently tied for third place overall with 85 points.
"What can I say, except that I am very pleased with the result this weekend. Sure I would have loved to win the race, but that wasn't in the cards this time. We are running at the leaders' pace and I am very confident that we will win races this year. My team has done an awesome job and is making huge strides with the new Ducati 848. The 848 is amazing. The FX class has stepped up the pace and we are right there. Having the financial support and resources from Ducati, LeoVince and Foremost Insurance is making all the difference," commented Pegram.
