March 3, 2014 – Monster Energy/Arctic Cat’s Tucker Hibbert will compete at his home race this weekend in Glyndon, Minnesota. For the third year, Buffalo River Race Park (BRRP) will host the ISOC Fargo Snocross National Friday and Saturday night. Hibbert lives only 30 miles from BRRP in rural Pelican Rapids.
Hibbert, who’s in his 14th professional season, is having a banner year. In January, he broke the record for the most Pro National Snocross wins and won his seventh-consecutive X Games gold medal. With his recent win streak, he’s now 11 for 12 on the ISOC National tour and has a firm grip on the 2014 Pro Open Points Championship.
Although Hibbert rarely spends time at home in the winter months, he’ll get to sleep in his own bed this weekend. With a strong following in the area, he hopes to have an allegiance of fans supporting him at BRRP.
Pro racing action takes place both Friday and Saturday night from 6 to 10 pm. The event will be streamed live online at ustream.tv/isoc and broadcast on CBS Sports Network. Tickets and pit passes will be available for purchase at the gate.
Tucker Hibbert – #68 Monster Energy/Arctic Cat
“It’s a really cool feeling racing close to home. I rarely get to sleep in my own bed in the winter so this weekend will be awesome.
I’m excited to see the track at BRRP. I know Kevin (track owner) and his crew have been working really hard to make an awesome track and put together a great event. The weather forecast looks comfortable so I hope to see the stands packed.
It’s a good feeling going into the last couple races with a big points lead in the championship. The goal is to keep riding consistent throughout qualifying and the main events. I’ve never felt better on my sled. Everything’s clicking this season and I’m having a lot of fun racing.”
