Club Crew Inactive Need Solution

My friend made a new club for us to join for when we’re online together but on the club ladder he is set to inactive and i am in the Bronze level. Does anyone know why this may be? Any help at all would be appreciated.

EDIT: We are both doing the CO-OP Campaign and my friend came 1st and i came 7th but i’m getting more XP than he is. is there a setting you need to change or do we just need to keep doing online races etc to gain more XP?
