IndyCar champion Joseph Newgarden was a guest on the September edition of Forza Monthly where he announced a series of Rivals challenges with rewards for participants and those who can beat his leaderboard times.

Navigate to Single Player > Rivals > Featured Events menu to find the "#TEAMJN Bounty Hunter event and set your best time before the deadline. All players will be driving the same rental car provided by the event. Each event will open at 9am Pacific and close at 1pm Pacific.

Week 1
September 23 - October 1
2019 Chevrolet #2 Team Penske Dallara at Road America Full Circuit

Week 2
October 9 - 15
2017 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 at Daytona Sports Car Circuit

Week 3
October 16 - 22
2019 Chevrolet #2 Team Penske Dallara at Suzuka Circuit Full

Week 4
October 30 - November 5
2017 Ford #22 Team Penske Pennzoil Fusion at Long Beach Full

According to Josef in the livestream "If you're able to beat my time throughout the challenge then you're going to get rewarded a custom livery that I got to create with Forza. And even you're not able to beat the time and you still participated, you will get a race suit which is pretty rare in the game. Each challenge will have a new race suit that is rare to the game that you can acquire just by participating."

To 'beat his time' make sure you set a clean lap so you are ranked above him on the leaderboard when the event closes. You don't need to follow Josef's gamertag but doing so will make it easy to see his time in the Friends sorted leaderboard: JNRACERTPX2

Hey Max, do we know what the exclusive IndyCar livery looks like for the players that beat Josef’s time for Week 4? Any info on when they’ll be sent out to the winners?
