What do you get when you pair a company’s marketing manger and one of their sponsored racers? Team ARB Machine, of course! Next up on our Team Week features is Kendra Miller and Bailey Campbell of Team #118. Both Original Rebelles coming back for more, these two teamed up last year through their connections at ARB 4×4 Accessories. When their competition car kept changing last year, they knew they had to be a well running machine to be able to compete in any vehicle, hence the name Team ARB Machine. It was their experience and success as a team last year that prompted them to continue on to do the 2017 Rebelle – and they can’t wait to do it all over again!
Kendra Miller is from Snoqualmie, WA but now lives in Hemet, CA working as the USA Marketing Manager for ARB. Her interests include soccer, crochet, and things that go zoom! Unlike most people, her favorite part of the day is her daily drive to/from work: 35 minutes down a 2-lane highway through the mountains and forest. This is the time where she gets ideas, solves problems, plans her day, reflects on life, and keeps in touch with faraway friends and family. Sounds like a pretty ideal commute to us!
With the attitude that her best trip ever is the next one she goes on, she’s back for another Rebelle because, “I drank the Kool-Aid and there’s no going back!” Her goals for this rally are to improve upon her skills that she developed last year and to make Bailey proud. She is most excited to ditch her cellphone and traverse the desert.
Born, raised and currently living Gilbert, AZ, Bailey Campbell is one busy girl! Not only does she work full time in her family’s fabrication shop, but she also attends college and runs her own photography business: Bailey Campbell Media. With her busy schedule, her favorite part of the day is going home and enjoying the last few hours with a good movie and extra buttered popcorn before she goes to bed.
Being back for Rebelle Round 2, her goals for this year’s rally are to take things slower and try to not get overwhelmed thinking about the time constraints. She’s learned that patience is key, especially when your navigator is trying to figure things out. What she is looking forward to the most catching up with all the other Original Rebelles and taking on the new challenges that the rally will bring.
“Who wouldn’t want to come back for another round of Rebelle! The journey we took on last year and the challenges that we overcame made the 2017 Rebelle an event weren’t able to pass up! Especially because its an honor to be an Original Rebelle.” – Bailey Campbell
