Brightening up this Monday with a Team (Tuesday) Highlight!
Becky Brophy and Samantha Barber not only make up Team #152, they are also part of Toyota’s engineering and Central Resource & Development departments. Piloting a Toyota Sequoia, the duo out of Kentucky is thrilled to be expanding the Toyota PE Motorsports team to off-road competition – hence the Rebelle Rally!
Please welcome the Toyota Way-Finders! Find out more about these first-time Rebelles by reading on.
Welcome to the Rebelle, Becky and Samantha!
Becky: Newport, KY/Georgetown, KY
Samantha: Washington, IN/Frankfort, KY
Something only your best friend knows about you:
Becky: I’m pretty much an open book I think lol but maybe an interesting fact is that I was the first female driver for Toyota PE Motorsports and I tied for first against a McLaren driving a Camry in the 2019 OLOA Wet Skid Pad. I don’t think I’m very interesting hahaha.
Favorite place ever:
Samantha: With my family, wherever that may be.
Why did you pick the vehicle you’re competing in?
Team: The Sequoia is made in North America, not commonly taken off-road, and gets us into the 4×4 class.
Why the Rebelle?
Team: We are expanding the Toyota PE Motorsports team to off-road competition, promoting women in engineering and manufacturing and to challenge ourselves.
Any shout-outs you’d like to make while you’ve got our attention?
Team: Thanks to Toyota Production Engineering, Toyota North America, Toyota Racing Development, Bass Pro Shops, Women Influencing and Impacting Toyota, Toyota TILT Lab, friends and family support.
