Larry Pegram Wins Fontana AMA SBK Race 1

Larry Pegram, on the Foremost Insurance/Pegram Racing Ducati 1098R, won race one this
afternoon in Fontana, CA., at the Auto Club Speedway. Pegram beat Jake Zemke to the line by .094 seconds to win his first AMA American Superbike race of the year after a stellar 2009
Activities for the day were delayed almost from the start due to high wind gusts up to 45 mph in the area the flipped an awning over a tractor trailer in the paddock and loosened a large section of airfence on the outside of the track. The AMA was able to revamp the schedule late in the afternoon, qualifying stood in all classes after yesterday's first day results, and Aaron Yates started his second round of 2010 racing from the pole due to setting fast time on Friday afternoon.
You can check out the top ten here thanks to John Ulrich's folks over at and they have a couple of shots at that show the wind damage earlier in the day as well:
The Daytona SportBike class was running as this was being posted at 1945 EDT and you can follow it and the rest of the action here from the AMA Live Timing and Scoring Link:
