Tucker Hibbert Continues Win Streak at Michigan’s Ram Truck Snocross

February 24, 2014 – Monster Energy/Arctic Cat’s Tucker Hibbert continued his win streak at the inaugural Ram Truck Snocross at Soaring Eagle Casino in central Michigan. Winning all his qualifying rounds and both main events in dominating fashion, the defending Pro Open Champion made it clear he enjoyed racing on Mt. Pleasant’s massive track featuring big air jumps, split lane corners and technical rhythm sections.

High wind with gusts exceeding 40 mph Friday night added yet another technical element to an already challenging racetrack. Riders were forced to tactically hit jumps to compensate for the wind pushing them in the air. Hibbert’s precision and patience paid off as he won both his qualifying rounds and the final event by sizable margins.

Both the riders and spectators welcomed Saturday’s clear skies and mild wind. The first round of Pro Open qualifying was a thriller after Hibbert got a last place start in the seven-lap, eight-rider race. Taking advantage of the big track, Hibbert was creative with line choices and stayed ultra low on jumps to make his way to the front of the field. He went on to win his second round of qualifying giving him first start line selection for the 12-lap, 14-rider main event. Hibbert pulled the Stud Boy holeshot but No. 53 Kody Kamm found a line around him. On lap five, Kamm high sided himself on the inside of a split lane corner giving Hibbert the lead. With a clear track in front of him, Hibbert pulled away from the field to win by over 15 seconds.

Overall, Hibbert gained 28 points on second place Kamm in the Pro Open Championship title chase. After a weekend break, he’ll take his 98-point lead into the final two events of the ISOC season.

Tucker Hibbert – #68 Monster Energy/Arctic Cat
“This weekend was a lot of fun. We’ve had small tracks the past two races so it was nice to have a big racetrack with room to try different lines. Racing on a big track makes it less stressful. I like that I don’t have to take chances and have space to set up passes.

I was put in a mix of race situations this weekend — coming from behind and leading from the beginning. One qualifying race came down to the last lap. The team worked super hard to have the success we did. It’s always fun to achieve our goals.

I’m really excited about the championship. Gaining 28 points on the weekend is a huge advantage for us. I’ve been doing everything I can to maximize my points and I feel really comfortable going into the last two events.”

Hibbert Unstoppable in New York to Sweep Eastern Snocross National

February 10, 2014 – Monster Energy/Arctic Cat’s Tucker Hibbert had a perfect weekend in Salamanca, New York to sweep rounds nine and ten of the ISOC National Snocross tour. Seneca Allegany Casino hosted the only eastern stop of the ISOC tour and featured the shortest track of the season with pro rider lap times dipping into the low 20-second range.

Hibbert entered Friday night’s Pro Open final with first start line pick after winning both his qualifying races. He grabbed a third place start in the 15-rider, 28-lap main event but was shuffled back to ninth on lap one after getting tangled with another rider. He put his head down and by utilizing the outside sweeper lane of the split corner in turn two, he picked off riders every lap. Near the halfway mark, he laid down the fastest lap of the race and moved into third place. On lap 16, he took the lead and never looked back to finish the race five seconds over second place.

Saturday began the same for Hibbert by sweeping his qualifying races. In the final, he got another third place start but quickly slotted behind leader Kyle Pallin. He spent the first ten laps of the 28-lap race stalking Pallin, looking for a line to make a clean pass. Riding smart on the choppy, icy track, Hibbert passed Pallin and took control of the race to record his 89th career victory.

Next up for Hibbert is the Ram Truck National in Mt. Pleasant, Mich. February 21-22. The event will be streamed live online at ustream.tv/isoc and broadcasted on CBS Sports Network.

Tucker Hibbert – #68 Monster Energy/Arctic Cat
“It was another weekend of short track racing so I’m happy to end the weekend healthy. Under a thin layer of sugary snow, the track was really icy. It was tough on the body and sled. It feels good to sweep a weekend again and to stretch out my points lead. The Monster Energy/Arctic Cat crew did an awesome job helping me make adjustments to my sled to get me as comfortable as I could be on the track.

I’m really looking forward to the Mt. Pleasant race. I heard the track is going to be big which makes me excited. It’s a first time event so it’s hard to know what to expect. Hopefully there will be a big crowd and we can put on a good show.”
