$500 BET TO TAKE OUT THE SWAMP MONSTER
Not only is this a war among two top drivers it'a a war among two top name engine builders. A/Gas stand out Kenneth Phillips (Silver Streak 58 vette) with Small Block Gene Fulton power has challenged A/Gas points leader Alan Gaulden in the 1960 Frequent Flyer (Swamp Monster) vette with Big block Par Race Engines power to a match race.
With all the hype about Gaulden's dominance this year in A/Gas and even with a bounty on his head it's not good enough for Kenneth Phillips. Phillips sent word today that he has $500 that says he can beat Gaulden in a 2 out of 3 match race. Gaulden was contacted and the two have agreed but only in legal Southeast Gassers Association trim and only in front of SEGA fans. Just so the fans know the money is not a fake bet the winner will add it to the 2019 SEGA A/Gas points fund. This will take place at the 7th stop on the SEGA tour at Mooresville Dragway in Mooresville NC August 17th. The format will be one round Friday night during open testing. Then the two will be lined up together during Saturday's two qualifying sessions. When Phillips was told the bounty money has to be earned during elimination and will not be paid during the match race. Phillips replied by saying

"I'M PLANNING WIN THE BET AND TAKE GAULDEN OUT WHEN ELIMINATIONS TIME COMES AND GET THE BOUNTY MONEY ALSO WHAT EVER IT MIGHT BE BY THEN"

Vette against Vette - Gaulden against Phillips - Fulton against PAR, A/GAS against A/GAS, Small Block against Big block.
