Why the Rebelle? 

Penny: Each year I come back to the Rebelle I learn so much about myself, about teamwork, strategy, time management – the list goes on! I find myself growing from it every year. Even though it’s an insanely challenging competition, it is also so much FUN and re-connecting with other Rebelle’s is an absolute highlight.
Shelby: I began my life/career/hobby as a desert racer. This whole “rally” thing was a whole new world to me when I competed in the inaugural 2016 Rebelle Rally. It changed the way I perceived competition and taught me so much about strategy, navigation, communication and comradery. I am glad my Papa pushed me to try something new – I have since learned so much about myself: how self-sufficient I truly am, how much fun it is to challenge my knowledge, it’s better to KNOW where you are than to assume, and laughing is the best medicine.

Any shout-outs you’d like to make while you have our attention?

Penny: The first one is reserved for Shelby Hall, my amazing friend + teammate. It’s a dream how well we work together + support each other. Shelby is an absolute force. She is one of the kindest, most positive, dedicated, committed individuals I’ve ever met and – wow – have you seen her drive?!
To Ford, thank you for giving Shelby and I the opportunity to chase our dreams in the new Bronco! We’re so honored to be a part of the Bronco legacy and community. To Overland Training Canada, thank you for your continued support over all the years and for believing in me to train + encourage others to push their own boundaries.
To Bronco Nation, Ford Performance Parts, Marmot, Rigid Lights & all of our many incredible sponsors – thank you for believing in us, for supporting women in motorsports and for your continued support!
Shelby: First and foremost: I want to give a shout out to Penny Dale! My navi is the sweetest, funniest, smartest, best person to have on your team. I feel so lucky to have met her and be able to continue our friendship as not just teammates but lifelong homies.
Thank you Ford for believing in my idea in the first place, and giving me the opportunity to shine for myself and encourage other women out there to push their courageous spirits.
Thank you BFGoodrich Tires – they are 100% always behind me in my adventures. The best and only tire I believe in. Plus, their service and employees are top notch!
Bronco Nation! Bronco Nation will be spending extra time with us this year to ensure our Rally is covered and shared to as many people as possible. They believe in women in motorsports and want to share “the stoke” of how incredible this experience and competition is.
We have many sponsors who help make this dream a reality, like Marmot, Rigid Lights, and Ford Performance Parts. We can’t wait to work hard and earn what’s to come!
