LeoVince Foremost Insurance Ducati Picks Up a Fourth at Miller Motorsports in Utah
Tooele, Utah (June 3, 2008) - Larry Pegram, of the LeoVince Foremost Insurance Ducati Team finished fourth this past weekend at Miller Motorsports Park in Tooele, Utah. The race at Miller was the fifth of the ten race series. Pegram is currently in third place overall with 138 points.
Pegram started the race on the second row of the grid after qualifying in fifth with a lap time of 2:58.479. He had a strong start, but was not able to run the pace of the leaders. He finished fourth after battling with Aaron Gobert of Rockwall Honda.
In 2007, Pegram pulled the holeshot at Miller Motorsports Park, but trouble with his front fork cost him and he finished the race in fourteenth overall, his second worst finish for 2007.
Pegram's practice times for the weekend were 2:53.498 on Thursday and 2:53.971 on Friday.
"We seemed to move backwards on setup this weekend. We had the speed and set the second fastest top speed of 167 mph in FX practice. I think we found out what we were doing wrong and should have it nailed down for Road America," commented Pegram.
The next race for the LeoVince Foremost Insurance Ducati Team will be June 7, 2008 at Road America in Elkhart Lake, Wisconsin (www.roadamerica.com).
