Formula 1, NASCAR, World Rally Cross, MotoGP – they all come to one spot where they go head-to-head on the same track in identical cars. The 2017 edition, held at Marlins Park in Miami, Florida, saw Colombian motorsport great, Horizon Hobby sponsored Juan Pablo Montoya taking on a field of the world’s best drivers in front of 15,000 fans to win the title of Champion of Champions. In addition to Montoya, this year’s roster of competitors included other notables such as Tom “Mr. Le Mans” Kristensen, four-time Formula 1 World Champion Sebastian Vettel (and last year’s ROC Champion of Champions),  Felipe Massa, David Coulthard, Kyle Busch, Travis Pastrana  – and the list goes on. This year’s event also featured a brand new figure-of-eight track that challenged drivers even more. The best-of-three Grand Final boiled down to a battle between Montoya and Kristensen in which Montoya took two straight heats to become the undisputed Champion of Champions.
