James Baldwin, also known as the “World’s Faster Gamer”, proved why that nickname is valid by becoming the “Champion of Champions” at the “Race of Champions”, on its 2020 Virtual Edition, featuring some of the world’s best drivers and simracers.

Baldwin defended his 2019 eROC title by beating Nils Naujoks (GER) and then went on to beat World Rallycross Champion, Timmy Hansen (SWE), who had won the drivers’ division after beating NASCAR Mexico Champion, Rubén García Jr (MEX).Baldwin also went on to win the Nations’ Cup with Romain Grosjean (FRA) by beating Team Sweden, with the two last Rallycross World Champions Hansen and Johan Kristoffersson, in a rally car simulating the Off-Road Gran Canaria track.

Kevin Harvick maintains the lead at the NASCAR Cup Series after scoring more points than any other driver this weekend at the Pocono doubleheader.Harvick won Saturday’s Pocono 350 and then finished second to Denny Hamlin in Sunday’s Pocono Organics 325, albeit scoring more points in that one too due to better results within the race’s stages.

With the win, Harvick has now won on almost every single NASCAR Cup track throughout his career except for the two most recent additions and has won three races this season.
