For the second consecutive year in a row, a Ram truck has won the Bone Stock Award in the all-female Rebelle Rally. Team 4 Corners’ consisting of driver Nena Barlow and co-pilot Chris Mayne also finished second overall in the event driving a bone stock brand new 2017 Ram 2500 Power Wagon. The Rebelle Rally is a seven day and 2,000 kilometer off-road driving and navigation competition covering the beautiful landscape from Lake Tahoe, Nevada, to California’s Imperial Sand Dunes with no GPS units or cell phones allowed. Last year, Team Squirrel Girls consisting of Nena and co-pilot Kande Jacobsen won the Bone Stock Award and third overall with a bone stock 2016 Ram 1500 Rebel.
“The terrain and the competition were much tougher this year. The Power Wagon ate up the terrain with ease, giving us more time and energy to focus on our navigation challenges. The HEMI power enabled us to be the only ones to make it to the top of the famous Oldsmobile Hill at Glamis, and the Ram Power Wagon’s ground clearance, sway bar disconnect and lockers allowed us to fish her through the infamous sharp rocks and steep hills of Johnson Valley. Her winch came in handy to rescue a competitor that slid off the trail. She is an unwavering force with the assets to do anything you need a truck to do, and then a whole bunch of crazy fun stuff!” says Nena.
She finishes by saying, “Thanks to Ram Trucks for providing our “third teammate”—a truck that did everything we asked with grace and ease. It is a huge deal to NOT have doubts about the capability of your vehicle while you are out in the stuff!” Way to go ladies! We are looking forward to seeing what Nena and Ram have up their sleeve for 2018!
