Betty was the first female (and grandmother) to win a World Championship. I forget the year, 1977/78?
Betty also started "Kaama" marine and drives. John Conner was her lead mechanic-throttle person. She was married to Paul Cook who ran the first Cat in a race. A 36' Cigarette was her first boat, a 38 Scarab was another-She also had a cat which never ran well. Originally from Glens Falls NY-home of the new APBA prez Ted Zolli. She passed away a few years ago.
Thats all I know off the top of my head.
