Vance & Hines Harley-Davidson Series Riders Set for Impressive Performances at DAYTONA 200 Week

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (March 14, 2013) – History — and common sense — suggest that this weekend’s AMA Pro Vance & Hines Harley-Davidson Series season opener at Daytona International Speedway will be nothing short of a multi-rider dogfight to the checkered flag.

Entering its fourth season of existence, the spec class series has quickly earned its place in the GEICO Motorcycle AMA Pro Road Racing line-up by producing reliably close and unpredictable racing, and nowhere has that been more evident than on the high banks of Daytona.

The two previous H-D Daytona clashes were defined by strategic gamesmanship and impossibly close maneuvers and the same will be expected in 2013.

In 2011, Kyle Wyman won by .016 seconds over Chris Fillmore, with Joe Kopp just 0.89 seconds off the win and Steve Rapp missing the podium but only 0.136 seconds short of taking the checkered flag first.

2012 saw Wyman win again in another contest that saw four men take hit the stripe within a second of the win with season-long title rivals Tyler O’Hara and Michael Barnes rounding out the podium.
While Wyman’s promising campaign ended early due to injury last season, the championship wasn’t decided until after the checkered flag was waved for the final race of the season, with the nod going to Barnes over O’Hara in what was the culmination in the Floridian’s long quest to claim his first individual AMA Pro crown.

Barnes is back with the #1 plate in 2013, riding a Rossmeyers Harley-Davidson backed by Bikers Choice. O’Hara (Eco Fuel Saver, Scrubblade, Bartel’s Harley-Davidson) and Wyman (Revolution Performance, Millennium Technologies) return as well, as the three men will look to reignite their three-way rivalry for class dominance.

However, there are other riders in the field with the potential to push for the checkered flag. Chief among them are former Superbike hero Rapp, who is back on an XR1200 with Suburban Motors Harley-Davidson, joining ex-Supermoto ace Ben Carlson, who has developed into a fine roadracer aboard the big Harley twin.

New Jersey Motorsports Park winner Shane Narbonne will again compete for Mob Racing, while SportBike race winner Bobby Fong and British sensation Sandra Stammova will team with champ Barnes on Rossmeyers Harley-Davidson equipment.

Michael Corbino (Rossiter’s Harley-Davidson of Sarasota), Josh Chisum (Eco Fuel Saver, Scrubblade, JC Racing), Travis Wyman (Harv’s Harley-Davidson), and Steve Crevier (Motorsports Plus) are just a few of the other names that could easily prove to be factors up front in what’s virtually guaranteed to be a hard-fought AMA Pro Vance & Hines Harley-Davidson opener.

Qualifying for Vance & Hines Harley -Davidson Series grid positions will take place in two sessions, Thursday afternoon at 5:30 p.m. and Friday morning at 9:40 a.m. The 7-lap contest will kick off the 2013 GEICO Motorcycle AMA Pro Road Racing season’s race action on Friday at 2:15 p.m. local time.

Hibbert Focused on Clinching Seventh National Snocross Championship

March 13, 2013 – Monster Energy/Arctic Cat’s Tucker Hibbert is focused on clinching his seventh National Snocross Championship this weekend in Lake Geneva, Wisc. For the first time in history, the final two rounds of the ISOC National Snocross tour will be held under the lights Friday and Saturday on the ski hill of Grand Geneva Resort.

Hibbert is having a banner year winning 10 of the 14 ISOC Pro Open finals and never finishing outside of the top-five. He enters this weekend with a 77-point lead over second place (577-500). With 90 points on the line between qualifying the final events Friday and Saturday, he is positioned to clinch the title Friday night.
Hibbert is not only looking to win the championship, he’s looking for redemption after a high-speed, downhill crash at Lake Geneva last year left him in the hospital for two weeks with a lacerated kidney. After a remarkable recovery, he is having one of the most successful snocross seasons of his 13-year professional career.
Pro Open racing takes place both Friday and Saturday at Grand Geneva Resort’s ski hill from 7 to 10:30 p.m. Hibbert will not compete in Sunday’s race events but will be on-site interacting with fans from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. For more details on his Sunday schedule, visit www.facebook.com/TuckerHibbert.

Tucker Hibbert – #68 Monster Energy/Arctic Cat
“This year’s been awesome so far. I had a few races where I made some mistakes and didn’t finish as well as I wanted but overall we (the team) have won a lot of races. My team has worked super hard all year to be in the position we’re in. Consistency is what it takes to win a championship. We’ve done a good job minimizing our mistakes. It’s a testament to how good the Monster Energy/Arctic Cat team is this year and how strong the Sno Pro 600 is.
Having a solid season feels really good after the rough year we had last season. Getting injured at Lake Geneva was a bummer but it motivated me to come back stronger. Looking back, maybe it was a blessing in disguise. I came back and proved that I’m still capable of winning races. Now, we’re in the number one spot fighting for the championship.
My number won goal for this weekend is to win the Pro Open championship. My second goal, a close second, is to win both main events. In the past, I haven’t had consistent finishes at Lake Geneva. I have a love hate relationship with that track. I’m excited and motivated to win some races this weekend.”
