  • Photo Challenge – Photograph any Rally Monster at the Gran Pantano (rewards are Emote reward and 2 pts.)

To complete the treasure hunt, you will need a Dodge Challenger, like the 1970 Challenger R/T. Then, head towards the Horizon Mexico festival home site and enter the Festival Drag Strip event. Enter the Apex event with the Challenger, and come in first. If you need help with that, make sure that you either tune, or download a tune that maxes out the class (i.e. A – 800) and has good Acceleration stats. Or, just turn the difficulty down.

Here’s where users can find the chest, once finishing the dragstrip race:
