Ram today announced it will support Arizona businesswomen Nena Barlow and Kande Jacobsen on the first-ever Rebelle Rally, a female only navigation and four-wheel-drive event to be held in the southwestern United States this October.
Participants in the Rebelle Rally will attempt to navigate a secret route that will take them from Lake Tahoe, Nevada to San Diego, California. No GPS or satellite navigation technology will be permitted – just a map and a compass.
Barlow boasts more than 20 years of 4WD industry experience. She operates a Jeep rental and 4WD training company called Barlow Adventures and is current the only woman in the world certified by the International 4WD Trainers Association.
Jacboson is similarly seasoned, operating an outdoor lifestyle photography and marketing company called Adventure Driven with her husband Seth. Barlow will drive the route, while Jacobson will serve as her navigator along the way.
“It might be expected that I would show up in one of my modified 4x4s, but I want to encourage people to get out and explore with whatever they have,” said Barlow. “I will be driving a totally stock Ram 1500, just like anyone can go out and buy today, not some expensive custom competition rig. The Ram Rebel comes ready to go.”
“We are all about adventure, dirt and getting out on the earth,” added Jacobsen. “We want to inspire others to do the same.”
