Superbike Family Returns for Season Two
Larry Pegram and his family-based racing team are returning to Speed TV for another season of Superbike Family. The new season of the reality program will showcase the endeavors of the Foremost Insurance sponsored racer’s 2012 racing season.
The second season of Superbike Family airs on the Speed TV January 5, 2013 at 9:00 p.m. EST, prior to live Supercross coverage. If you want to catch up on the first season, episodes can be viewed at blog.foremost.com.
“The show is about our dream of becoming a Superbike Championship race team. My parents, wife and children all contribute to the season and my crew is the best,” says Pegram. “This show takes a behind-the-scenes look at what it really takes to be a superbike racer, how we have endured as a family-owned and operated team and what steps we take to commit to the challenge.”
Superbike Family is sponsored in part by Foremost and began taping during the first 2012 race weekend at Daytona International Speedway. The show will document the Superbike family through the 2012 season at the superbike races, as well as their entertaining home life.
“Pegram racing is a first-class operation and it’s great to give people the chance to see that,” says Randy Slotten, director of marketing at Foremost. “The show gets down to the actual dream Larry had of becoming a Superbike racer and how his family has supported him. It’s not only entertaining, but sheds light on just what it takes to make a team like this run.”
