Like it or not, we have become a nation of reality television viewers. Everything from reality based game shows, celebrity lifestyle shows, and even the evening news has take on a somewhat unscripted feel, trying to make everything seem more "real." Sports television has also jumped on the bandwagon, and The Superbike Family, now starting their third season, returns to the air this weekend to document the AMA Pro National Guard Superbike series.
The "Superbike Family" is a reality show based on the excitement and adventure of Foremost Insurance Group sponsored racer Larry Pegram and his family-based racing team. The reality series will air beginning Saturday, February 8 at 3:30 p.m. ET on Velocity, and continues most Saturdays in February and March at both 3:00 p.m. and 3:30 p.m. If you are a binge watcher, and want to try and catch up on the first two years of the program before it's third season debut, you can catch up on past seasons on the Foremost Blog right now.
Larry Pegram is a professional road racer who not only champions wins on his bike, but is owner and manager of his own team.
"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. "The third season of the show was especially exciting because it takes a behind-the-scenes look at my season riding Yamaha and the podiums I championed. It was an exciting time for my family and crew."
Superbike Family is sponsored in part by Foremost(R) and documents the Superbike Family through the 2013 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 highlights Larry's passion and drive for Superbike racing and how his family supports him. It's not only entertaining, but sheds light on why he's so well respected in the industry. Foremost is proud to sponsor the Pegram Road Racing team and the Superbike Family reality show."
