team-best sixth place finish.“We’ve taken the 2020 Frontier on a couple of trial runs, and it’s been an absolute rock
star,” said Woodward. “I’m very excited about the extra power in the V6 – it’s a solid truck,
and that’s what you need to compete out here.“Our first goal is to always compete hard, but I don’t see any reason why Sedona and I
can’t win it all this year.”

About The Rebelle Rally
The Rebelle Rally, entering its fifth year, is the first women’s off-road navigational rally raid in the
United States. The event has a unique challenge and scoring system where precise navigation, not
speed, is the ultimate goal. Participants trade in cell phones and GPS for old-school navigation in a
competition for the elements of time, distance, headings, and hidden checkpoints. Armed with just
maps, compasses, and roadbooks, teams of two will be pushed to their limits as they make their way
across 2,000+ kilometers of Nevada and California’s iconic terrain. Starting October 8 in Lake Tahoe
and finishing October 17 along the famed Glamis Dunes, the competition is the longest competitive
off-road rally in the nation. For more information including live show and tracking, visit
