TEAM TORQ-MASTERS, #104

VEHICLE: Jeep Wrangler Unlimited LJ

Melissa and Cora both share a love of extreme rock crawling, adventure and amateur archeology. While they live in separate parts of the country, Cora travels to Moab for a few weeks a year to promote her company at Off Road events and to hit the trails and explore ancient cliff dwellings with Melissa.

Team 104 was one of the Original Rebelle Rally teams and finished in a respectable 5th place overall. Melissa and Cora won the coveted Team Spirit award which included a very generous $5,000 donation from Amy Lerner to the Best Friends Animal Sanctuary, a leader in no-kill animal shelters.

Cora and Melissa are super excited for the 2017 Rebelle Rally and will return to compete with the TORQ Locker Jeep!
