ELKHART LAKE, Wis. (Sunday, June 12, 2022) – Two-time NTT INDYCAR SERIES champion Josef Newgarden claimed $1 million for charity and his team Sunday by winning the Sonsio Grand Prix at Road America presented by AMR.
The $1 million will be split between Newgarden and Team Penske, and the two charities of Newgarden’s choice – Wags and Walks of Nashville and SeriousFun Children’s Network.
Newgarden became the first overall winner of the Challenge with his Road America victory by having a win on a road course, oval (Texas Motor Speedway) and street course (Streets of Long Beach).
The PeopleReady Force for Good Challenge is part of a new partnership between industrial staffing giant PeopleReady and INDYCAR. It will continue to award a $10,000 donation to every race winner for the remainder of the season – split between the driver, their team, and their charity of choice.
