Focus Rally America


Friends- Ford is teaming up with the creators of The Amazing Race to create a new web series -- Focus Rally America. Basically, it's the ultimate interactive cross-country road trip.

Seeing as my girlfriend and I are both reality TV and social media junkies, we decided throw inhibitions to the wind and try out for the show.

Well, guess what----we’re national finalists (whoot whoot)!  To catapult ourselves to the top of the finalist list, we need some serious help expanding our social media networks.

A ‘lil something something about us:

Whit and I (or Willitney as our friends like to tease) met at a house party on a rainy Seattle night nearly two years ago. Our shared interest in fashionable footwear, faith, giving back, real estate, and anything device starting with the letter “i” quickly lead to love.

How we plan to “pay it forward”:

As participants on Focus Rally America, we’d strut our stuff to raise money (and new  2012 Ford Focus wheels) for the following causes:

-     Our hypothetical future as a couple J

-     Our favorite non-profits (specifically, the YWCA, Young Life, and Alzheimer's Foundation of America)


 More About the Ford 2012 and Focus Rally America:

 #1Feature: Focus Rally America: Power Shift

“Part of what makes Focus so satisfying to drive is its fully engaging available six-speed PowerShift automatic transmission, which delivers seamless gear changes and excellent responsiveness. And because it’s also designed to be fuel-smart, you can have plenty of fun, without paying the price at the pump. Select models also include SelectShift technology which allow you to change gears at the touch of a button.”

Ford Focus


Benefit to Will and Whit while on the Focus Rally America challenge: We’re cheap. This will save us money.

#2 Feature: Focus Rally America: Power Shift

“The available SYNC® entertainment and communications system allows you to easily operate most popular MP3 players and Bluetooth®-enabled phones with simple voice commands.* SYNC® even gives you peace of mind with 911 Assist™ and Vehicle Health Report. “

Benefit to Will and Whit while on the Focus Rally America challenge: When we get sick of talking to each other, we can talk to SYNC.


#3 Feature: Focus Rally America: MyKey™ technology

“MyKey™ technology is a feature designed to help parents encourage teenagers to drive safely. It allows owners to designate a key that will operate special features. For example, MyKey™ can restrict the vehicle’s top speed to 80 mph and limit the entertainment system’s audio volume to 44 percent of maximum volume. It also provides a warning when the fuel tank reaches 75 miles to empty.”

Benefit to Will and Whit while on the Focus Rally America challenge: Running out of gas will certainly give the “others” a competitive lead. This can NOT happen. Plus, if a teen somehow takes the wheel, we’ll be able to monitor their tunes.


#4 Feature: Focus Rally America: My Ford Touch


“Introducing available MyFord Touch technology. It will do for the Focus what touch screens did for the phone. A simple, intuitive eight-inch touch screen you can customize puts the controls at your fingertips.Many functions are voice-activated. Meanwhile, steering wheel-mounted controls let you use the system and keep your hands on the wheel. “

Benefit to Will and Whit while on the Focus Rally America challenge:  So…essentially, this is an iPad in the car. Take that, Steve Jobs!


#5 Feature: Focus Rally America: Rain Sensing Wipers

“Our available rain-sensing wipers are all-new for the 2012 Focus. When activated, they use an advanced optical sensor to detect the intensity of rain and/or snowfall to adjust wiper speed. They automatically go on when moisture is sensed.”

Benefit to Will and Whit while on the Focus Rally America challenge: We’re from Seattle, and can handle the rain, but snow is another beast!

Hi Will, interesting you mentioned the Ford Focus as I sat, starred and was impressed with the Focus four door that I viewed at the local market where they were on display. Really they have rain sensing wipers. You mean to say we are too lazy now to push or turn a knob. Does it sense how heavy the rain is coming down as well. Really it's a nice looking car and considering buying one in the future.

Very cool, Will. I'm a big fan of the Amazing Race, and this sounds like an equally as-cool concept. Best of luck to you!

Are your links in #1 mixed up?  I just end up on my profile clicking on the first?  I may already be a friend with Whitney on FB but I would not think so.

1.   Follow us on Facebook

a.   Will!/

b.   Whit

Link B. took me to yours FB. 

When I got to Twitter I realized I already follow Whitney.  It is a small world. But of course now that I know who she is. 

hung up on doing #5 until I have friend Whitney on Facebook, but I should be able to find her.

I am not a big reality TV fan but I  got addicted to Amazing Race one season.  I could be addicted to a show with Will and Whitney.

Good luck...

That is fantastic.  Enjoy your time as some friends of ours were on the most recent "Amazing race" and said that too often they forgot to take everything in because they were so focused on the race.
