Ram Truck’s 2020 Power Wagon Competes for Rebelle Rally Win

This week, the rugged Western desert is alive with teams of all-female drivers competing in this year’s Rebelle Rally. Thirty-six teams set out from Lake Tahoe earlier this week to put their best driving and navigational skills on the line for the win in this demanding, annual, off-road, navigation-based competition, the first competition of its kind in the U.S.

Representing Team 4 Corners (Team #129), in partnership with Ram Truck, is Rally veteran Nena Barlow and her seasoned Rally navigator Tana White. They’re tackling the tough desert terrain in a Hydro Blue 2020 Ram Power Wagon, weighing in at 7,300 pounds, with 410 horsepower and 429 lb.-ft. of torque. In previous Rallies, Nena has driven a 2016 Ram Rebel, 2017 Ram Power Wagon and 2019 Ram Rebel, capturing the prized Bone Stock Award in two of those three competitions and finishing second overall.

The Bone Stock Award goes to the highest scoring team driving a completely stock factory condition vehicle. The teams will log approximately 1,200 miles over seven days of some of the roughest, most challenging Nevada and California desert, using only their native skills to navigate. No cell phones, computers or GPS allowed.

Hi, I’m Betty Carrier Newman. I know – three names! Just who does she think she is? I’m a native Michigander; therefore, I love all things outdoors, like hiking and off-roading. I work in Communications with the Digital Media team. Some days I produce video shoots, write scripts, voice and edit video for features to post to our corporate and social media sites. Other times I’m strategizing with the brands I support – Ram, Jeep and Corporate – to come up with attention-grabbing ways to tell their unique stories. Then there’s the travel - to places like Moab, Utah, and the Rubicon Trail in California - to shoot (and enjoy) awesome off-road adventure that I then turn into exciting videos to post on our sites. Routine? Definitely not in my world! Challenges, creativity, cool cars and trucks, exciting places – yeah, they’re in there! Oh, the three names? In an earlier life I was hired as the first major-market female TV co-anchor for the NBC affiliate in Detroit – Channel 4. My name was Betty Carrier back then – until I married and added the ‘Newman.’ That’s my story and, yes, I’m really enjoying my FCA ride!
