The relationship between LeoVince and Pegram Racing is entering its fourth year.

Last year I think we shook up the ranks of F/X and pushed the championship race to the wire. This year we are back with a new bike that we think is exceptional and Larry is once again in top form. Our work with Pegram Racing has been very instrumental in the development and continual improvement of our Ducati SBK Corsa race systems and SBK Factory race street systems. We have forged a fantastic relationship with Larry, his family and his crew, one that the LeoVince family feels represents the very core of our beginnings, a passion for racing.” Larry Pegram added, “LeoVince has been a great sponsor and true believer in my dream to build a top performing motorcycle road race team. They have been with me from the start and a key partner in my program; providing the technology and funding to make our team competitive. Their passion for motorcycle racing is demonstrated by their actions at the track. Last year we were on the podium a number of times and fighting for the win by the end of the season. This year we are ready to battle for the win at the start of the series. We have everything we need, the sponsors have really stepped up, the bike is amazing and I am mentally and physically the strongest I have ever been.”
