Dodge Ram Rebel tapped as official vehicle of Barlow/Jacobsen Rebelle Rally team
Hey everyone! Congratulations to our good friend Nena Barlow are in order! She is representing Dodge Ram trucks in the inagural Rebelle Rally this October!

Sedona, Ariz. – Ram Truck today announced its support of Arizona businesswomen Nena Barlow of Barlow Adventures and Kande Jacobsen of Adventure Driven and will provide a 2016 Ram Rebel truck for the two women to drive in this year’s inaugural Rebelle Rally.

The Rebelle Rally is a new navigation and four-wheel-drive event crossing portions of the southwestern United States this October.

The Rebelle Rally is unique in the U.S. It’s not a race for speed, but rather a competition of precise navigation using only map and compass. It takes place over seven days and more than 1,000 miles on a highly secret route of back roads, across deserts and over mountains between Lake Tahoe, Nev. and San Diego, Calif. No GPS or any electronic navigation is permitted.

This all-women event is being organized by veteran off-road racer and trainer, Emily Miller. Miller was the first U.S. woman to compete in the long-running Gazelle Rally in Morocco.

Nena Barlow comes with more than 20 years of experience in the 4wd industry. As owner and operator of Barlow Adventures, a Jeep rental and 4WD training company, Barlow is currently the only woman in the world certified by the International 4WD Trainers Association.

Kande Jacobsen and her husband, Seth, own Adventure Driven, a professional photography and marketing company, specializing in overlanding and the outdoor lifestyle. Jacobsen brings to the mix a background of all things outdoors: hiking, horseback riding, dirt biking, orienteering and four-wheeling.

Barlow and Jacobsen will be driving a stock 2016 Ram Rebel in the competition, exactly as the model rolls out of the factory. Barlow will fill the role of driver, while Jacobsen fills the right seat as navigator. Both women bring strong driving and navigating skills to the team, and can swap roles as needed.

“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.”

Look for Barlow and Jacobsen at upcoming meet and greet events, 4WD events and training with Ram trucks around Northern Arizona.

Nena & Kande took 3rd place in the 4x4 class! Woot! Great job team Squirrel Girls!

Even though Nena nose-dived the Dodge Rebel off a 4' dune and bent up the front bumper, they were able to continue the course and finish!!!

Here's a link to an excellent day-by-day brief coverage of the event: http://www.offroadlifestyle.com/2016...ally-2016-eng/
