Ford Bronco Sport Secures Fourth Consecutive Win At Rebelle

The Ford Bronco Sport made its debut at the Rebelle Rally – a prestigious off-road race for women only – back in 2020, and found quick success after the team secured an X-Cross class win before following it up with another first-place class finish the following year and, in 2022, the rugged crossover managed to make that a three-peat. This year, the Ford Bronco Sport returned as part of a five-team effort including the Ford Bronco and Ford Mustang Mach-E Rally, and once again, the Bronco Sport managed to take home a class win – making it four years in a row The Blue Oval has accomplished that impressive feat.

This time around, it was the dynamic duo of Jessica Moore – a trail guide at Bronco Off-Roadeo Texas – and Melissa Clark – a guide at Bronco Off-Roadeo Moab and the Bronco Sport Curator for Bronco Nation – who secured victory in the X-Cross class behind the wheel of a Ford Bronco Sport. They were joined by Laura Wanlass and Maria Guitar, who brought home bronze in the 4×4 Class. All four Bronco teams finished in the top 10 of the 4×4 Class, in fact, while the all-new Mach-E Rally managed to come in fifth place in its debut in the X-Cross class.
