During thst timeframe I don't think the outcomes of the matches mattered as much as the showmanship of the combatants.
I don't think anywhere is available a list of yearly records and champions. 
Today's Roller Derby is far more on the up and up.
It was actually the Roller Games that were more like sports entertainment. They had a Figure 8 track to increase the mayhem. I think you're right about stats and standings being saved. I can't find any on the interwebs.
That was the late 80's version.  The version from 67 to 75 had the same track but more of the face and heel element.  Where I live the Warriors were always the good guys.  I have long thought that they must have had different tapings for the other media market and switched roles.
