DAYTONA BEACH, FL – Barry Beggarly, the 2011 ASA Joe Gibbs Driven Racing Oil Member Track National Champion, will have his tryout with Joe Gibbs Racing on Monday, November 21. The tryout will take place at a familiar place for Beggarly, Ace Speedway, an ASA Member Track in Altamahaw, NC.
“I am really looking forward to it, this should be fun,” the 2011 National Champion from Pelham, NC said. “I am also looking forward to visiting with JD Gibbs and touring their race shops.”
