Freeplay in Forza 6 - where is it?

I apologize for the dumb question but this is driving me nuts. Where do I find Freeplay in Forza 6. I have just started playing it and I am stuck/forced to keeps racing in career mode. I can’t get out of it. There is no option to stop this and go play Freeplay. Where is the rest of the menu? For the life of me I can’t find any option to play Freeplay. Where is it? I have a 7 year old who wants to just play Freeplay, however I just can’t find it. What do I need to do? I’m about ready to explode.

After the first three races you should have full menu access. Can you press the controller button to open the Pause menu and Exit the current race?
