In his first trip to Derby Downs in Akron, Ohio, Mason Breeden became Culpeper's fourth world champion since 2008. The eighth-grader at Culpeper Middle School out paced the field in the Stock Division Saturday to become Culpeper's first local champion to win the world championships. Culpeper's previous three world champions qualified via rally points.
