Tucker Hibbert Finishes Historic Snocross Season with Three More Wins

March 17, 2014 – Monster Energy/Arctic Cat’s Tucker Hibbert finished a historic snocross season with three wins at the ISOC Grand Finale in Lake Geneva, Wisc. Hibbert clinched the 2014 ISOC Pro Open Championship Friday night with an exciting come-from-behind win and went on to claim the top spot of the podium Saturday and Sunday to wrap-up the season with 15 of 17 possible Pro Open final victories.

In his 14th winter racing in the pro class, Hibbert recorded his most successful season-to-date. In January, he eclipsed legend Blair Morgan’s long-standing snocross pro national win record to become the most-winning racer in the history of the sport. Later that month, he became the first athlete in history to win seven-consecutive gold medals at X Games Aspen. With his recent wins in Lake Geneva, he’s on track to claim his 100th pro national victory next winter – a feat nearly unheard of in the motorsports world.

Hibbert will now switch gears to prepare for his 15th summer competing in the AMA Pro Motocross Championship where he’ll continue to chase his goal of a top-10 finish in the premier 450-class. Stay connected to tucker-hibbert.com for details on his summer schedule and plans for next winter.

Tucker Hibbert – #68 Monster Energy/Arctic Cat
“Lake Geneva was awesome this year. The snow conditions and weather were perfect. The track was super challenging. It was cool to see a big crowd all three days. The vibe was awesome and I had a lot of fun.

I’m really excited about how the season played out. It’s rewarding to have all the hard work pay off. The team is doing all the right things to reach our goals. I know we have to keep pushing to stay on top and I’m motivated by that challenge. We’ll be working hard to take it one step higher next year.

It’s awesome to see snocross growing and moving in the right direction. We’ve seen a lot of progression in the sport the past few years. ISOC is doing a great job putting on good events and to make live TV a reality Sunday was a big step. The sport has a bright future and I’m excited to be apart of it.

I don’t have my summer plans finalized but know I’ll be racing motocross and mountain bikes. I really enjoy competing in multiple sports and know it’s best way to be prepared for next winter. It’s going to be another summer filled with racing adventures and that’s just the way I like it.”

Hibbert Extends Points Lead to Enter Final Race in Charge of Championship

March 10, 2014 – Monster Energy/Arctic Cat’s Tucker Hibbert had a solid weekend at his home race in Glyndon, Minn. and gained another 22 points over second place in the 2014 ISOC Pro Open Championship chase. The defending champion will enter the final event of the season with a comfortable 120-point lead. With three days of racing and 135 points on the line in Lake Geneva, Wisc., Hibbert has the opportunity to clinch the championship Friday night.

Hibbert was perfect in qualifying both Friday and Saturday on Buffalo River Race Park’s horseshoe shaped, high-speed track. He ripped the holeshot in Friday’s Pro Open final and commanded the 14-rider, 15-lap race to win by a jaw-dropping 25 seconds.

In Saturday’s Pro Open final, Hibbert was strong off the start but a first turn incident ejected him from his sled. Uninjured, he reentered the 14-rider race in last place. He quickly moved through the pack and by lap three of 15, he slotted into eighth place. The following lap, he lost control of his sled after getting high-sided in a tight left-hand split-lane corner. By the time he remounted his sled, he was shuffled back to 12th. He put on a second impressive charge determined to get on the podium but ran out of time to finish in fifth place.

The ISOC National Snocross Grand Finale in Lake Geneva, Wisc. this weekend will feature three days of Pro Open racing. For the first time in ISOC history, the final race will be broadcast live on national television. Fans can stream Friday and Saturday’s events online at ustream.tv/isoc from 6-10 pm CT and watch Sunday’s event live on CBS Sports Network beginning at 1 pm CT.

Tucker Hibbert – #68 Monster Energy/Arctic Cat
“It’s cool racing so close to home and having so many friends and family cheering me on. I was excited to see the stands packed Saturday night. Overall, it was a good weekend. I felt really good on the track. Saturday’s final didn’t go as planned after I had a little help in the first turn, but I’m glad I came out of it safe. I’m heading into the final race healthy and with a strong points lead and that’s all the matters. This year has been incredible and it’s hard to believe the season is almost done. I’m looking forward to wrapping up the championship in Lake Geneva and celebrating months of hard work with my team.”
