DeMoss, whose family races on a regular basis at the Eddyville Raceway qualified for the high school division by virtue of running at least three times at Eddyville this season ,and only in her fourth event won a “Wally” which is given to all event winners of the National Hot Rod Association. The Wally is named after Wally Parks, who founded the N-H-R-A in 1961.
