More On Larry Pegram's Plans To Race A Yamaha YZF-R1 In The 2013 AMA Pro Superbike Championship

Foremost Insurance Group/Pegram Racing Announces a New Ride for 2013.

Hebron, OH – Veteran Superbike racer Larry Pegram will be on the seat of a new bike this season and it’s none-other than a Yamaha YZF-R1. Backed again by long time sponsor Foremost Insurance Group, Pegram Racing is looking forward to a fast and successful AMA Pro Road Racing season on the new R1 and is proud to go back to his roots.

“My very first race bike was a Yamaha 50 that I competed on when I was five years old, so in a sense, this is a perfect choice for me,” said Pegram. “With all the success that the R1 has shown in the past, I’m so excited to be on a fast bike with proven results. I’m looking forward to a new season on a new ride.”

Pegram has been involved in the racing industry for over 20 years and is a talented veteran with proven results. He is one of the only privateer teams in the series that races at this professional Superbike level. The technical and manufacturing support from Yamaha should make a big difference in the upcoming race season.

“We believe in Pegram racing and continue to sponsor Larry based on his talent, professionalism and results,” said Randy Slotten, director of marketing for Foremost. “We are really excited for Larry to be racing on a bike with proven results and can’t wait to see what his expertise and this bike will accomplish this season.”

The Foremost Insurance/Pegram Racing team will take to the track for the AMA American Superbike season opener at Daytona International Speedway March 14-16, 2013. Pegram Racing has also recently been featured on the reality show, Superbike Family airing on SPEED TV through the month of February. To see last season’s episodes, visit
