Pegram and American road racing are going Hollywood.

American Superbike racer Larry Pegram and his family-based racing team will be the stars of a new TV series called “Superbike Family.” The first of six episodes will air February 26 on Discovery HD Theater. The new reality show will document the challenges an American Superbike racer faces trying to balance a career on the road with the demands of a family man with two young girls. It will also showcase the unique relationship among the Pegram family who all contribute to the race team in one form or another. Pegram’s dad, Jim, works full-time at the team shop and his mother helps with the books and feeds the crew on weekends.

“The show is about my dream of becoming a Superbike Champion. Actually, it’s our dream. 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.”

Pegram, who won a race at Auto Club Speedway while competing on a Ducati 1198R last season, will ride a BMW S1000RR this year in the 2011 AMA American Superbike Championship.
