Team Wild Grace, comprised of veteran off-roaders Sedona Blinson and Lyn Woodward, piloted the Armada Mountain Patrol across more than 1,500 miles of stunning off-road terrain in California and Nevada over eight days before crossing the finish line of the longest competitive off-road rally in the United States on Oct. 19.


“It’s been a thrill to watch Armada Mountain Patrol thrive at one of the most grueling rallies in the world,” said Tiago Castro, director of trucks and SUVs, Nissan North America. “A huge congratulations and thank you goes to Sedona and Lyn, who handled this beast of a vehicle as well as anyone we’ve seen and made us all proud on one of the biggest stages in the off-roading world.”
