Advance, NC (August 5, 2008) - After an amazing holeshot from the second row, Larry Pegram finished sixth overall (just 4.482 seconds behind the leader) in the Formula Xtreme race. The race was red flagged after only ten laps. Pegram was at the front of the pack in the early laps trading spots with the other front runners. Problems with set-up made it difficult for him to maintain the pace needed to finish on the podium.
Pegram qualified in fifth place with a lap time of 1:27.040. Pegram's practice times for the weekend were 1:27.563 on Friday and 1:28.067 on Saturday.
In 2007 at Mid-Ohio, Pegram finished in fifth place, 8.313 seconds behind the leader.
"I was pleased with the start this past weekend, but disappointed that I was not able to get on the podium. We had problems getting the right set-up all weekend. I am looking forward to getting back on the podium at VIR in two weeks," commented Pegram.
The next race is August 15, 2008 at Virginia International Raceway (www.virclub.com).
