Hibbert secures points lead with a win at Snocross season opener

Monster Energy / Arctic Cat / Ram Truck’s Tucker Hibbert secured the ISOC National Snocross Pro Open points championship lead with a win at the 2015-2016 season opener in Duluth, Minn. The nine-time champion put his experience to work with a solid win Saturday and heart-pumping race through the pack Sunday.

In front of a maximum capacity crowd, Hibbert pulled off a big win Saturday night. A fifth-place start in the Pro Open final forced him to push hard in the opening laps on Spirit Mountain ski hill’s icy, rough track. Nine laps into he 20-lap, 15-rider final, he made the move on leader no. 324 Kyle Palin and pulled away for the win. It marked his fifth consecutive Duluth National Pro Open victory.

In Sunday’s final, Hibbert got a mid-pack start and spent the first half of the race searching for lines to make passes on the tight track. By the time he moved into second place, front runner, no. 53 Kody Kamm had already stretched out a near a nine-second gap. Navigating through lapped traffic, he consistently chipped away at Kamm’s lead. The final lap, he latched onto Kamm’s rear bumper and it was a fight to the checkers with Hibbert finishing just 0.477 of a second shy of the win.

After a weekend off, the ISOC National Snocross tour returns to action at Buffalo River Race Park in Glyndon, Minn. December 11-12. For more information on Hibbert and his schedule this winter, visit tucker-hibbert.com.

 Tucker Hibbert – #68 Monster Energy / Arctic Cat / Ram Truck

“I feel like the weekend went really good. Obviously, we (the team) wanted to win both finals but it was a solid weekend. Taking the win Saturday was an awesome to start the season. The hard charge to second place in Sunday’s race was good too. Overall, it was a successful weekend.”

“I didn’t have a plan (to beat Kamm in Sunday’s final). I just focused on catching him. Once I got broke free of lappers and had a clear track in front of me, I closed the gap quick. I charged as hard as I could. It’s disappointing not to win but I’m pumped on my performance.”

“I’m really excited about the weekend off between now and the next race. We (the team) are going to be working super hard at the track and in shop to improve on our weaknesses. The goal is to show up at the next round ready to win and extend our points lead.”
