WORTHINGTON — Cameron Koopman was determined to add some extra weight. In preparation for the 2008 International Karting Federation Grand Nationals earlier this month in Huron, S.D., Koopman was careful not to make the same mistake he made the previous year, when losing a few pounds cost him a national title. At the 2007 national championships in Huron, Koopman cruised to a first-place finish. Race officials handed him the checkered flag, and he drove it around the track.Word count: 842
