Discovery Channel's HD Theater will air six episodes of “Superbike Family” beginning
this Saturday, February 26. The series depicts Team AMSOIL motorcycle racer Larry Pegram and his family-based racing team as they compete on the AMA Superbike circuit.
Pegram, a career professional motorcycle rider for the last twenty years juggles his time managing the most successful independent Superbike team on the circuit while at the same time raising two young girls with his wife Heather. His dad Jim works full-time at the team shop, while his mother tends to the books and feeds the crew on weekends.
“The show is about my dream of becoming a Superbike Champion. Actually, it’s our dream," said Pegram. "My parents have been helping me race motorcycles since I was a kid and they’re still here at every race working on the crew. My mechanics are the best and are so committed to this team. They do as much if not more than teams who have twice the manpower. We even have sponsors that after writing the check, help out on the weekends working in the pits. It’s definitely a family effort and we’re real proud of what we have accomplished going up against the factory teams. It’s not easy but all of us are chasing our dream.”
