Norwegian Cruise Line hosted the ultimate "Champion-Ship" race this past weekend. Former American football tight end Rob Gronkowski and auto racing champion Jeff Gordon, competed on the largest racetrack at sea aboard Norwegian Encore, the newest innovative ship of the Norwegian fleet. After three laps across the over 1,100-foot track and 11 thrilling turns, Gronkowski hit Gordon from behind, spinning him out, to narrowly claim the win!
