Mitsubishi Motors and the 2021 Rebelle Rally

Back in 2018, Mitsubishi Motors started a campaign called the “Small Batch – Big Impact” initiative. The premise was simple – the automaker produced a sample size of the vehicles available in the lineup, and then donated these vehicles to worthwhile causes, usually charities in need of transportation. Mitsubishi has also provided much help in Nashville, TN, the hometown of its new manufacturing plant. In 2019 Mitsubishi Motors got a little gutsy and entered a rally to show what the Eclipse Cross can do. It was the 2019 Rebelle Rally, and the mark Mitsubishi left on team Record the Journey spawned a tradition that continues in October for the 2021 Rebelle Rally.

This race is a continuation of the partnership between Mitsubishi Motors and Record the Journey (RTJ), a military veterans charity dedicated to helping service members transition back into civilian life successfully. RTJ is also involved in advocating for PTSD awareness. Sergeant Major Rachael Ridenour, a U.S. Army combat veteran with 32 years of service, is the RTJ charity founder and served as team navigator during the 2019 Rebelle Rally in a Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross and the 2020 Rebelle Rally in a Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV.

MMNA started its own program in 2018 – “Small Batch – Big Impact” – an initiative aimed at improving the community by producing a small batch of Mitsubishi Motors models and then using them to make a big impact on the community. It eventually spawned MMNA’s Community Utility Vehicle (CUV) Program, with its first donation to nonprofit organization Record the Journey, racing with RTJ in the annual Rebelle Rally. That tradition continues in 2021.
