Hibbert takes double wins at Ram Trucks Snocross National in Michigan

Monster Energy / Arctic Cat / Ram Truck’s Tucker Hibbert took double wins at the Ram Trucks Snocross National in Mt. Pleasant, Mich. to continue his win streak on the ISOC National Snocross tour. Hibbert is now 10-for-12 in the Pro Open class this season and holds a 102-point lead in the 2016 championship chase.

Hibbert was in top form Friday night winning both his qualifying rounds and the final.

After poor starts in both his qualifying rounds Saturday night, Hibbert had a hard time moving through the field to take a pair of fourth place finishes. The defending champion admitted to struggling in the sloppy, slippery snow and not feeling comfortable taking chances while getting blasted by heavy, wet snow roost. He knew getting a solid start could make or break his run for the win in the final.

In the 15-rider, 18-lap final, Hibbert launched off the start line only to miss grabbing the Stud Boy Holeshot by inches. Hanging close behind frontrunner #54 Petter Narsa in the opening laps, he searched for a line to make the pass. On lap five, Hibbert got a fast run on outside of the downhill rhythm section, snuck to the inside of Narsa at the bottom corner of the hill to make the pass. Once out front, Hibbert went unchallenged to complete the weekend sweep.

Next up for Hibbert is the penultimate event of the season. For the second consecutive year, Route 66 Raceway, right outside of Chicago, will transform its famed drag strip into a snocross course. For more information on the event, visit route66raceway.com.

 

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

“The track and snow was pretty good on Friday but on Saturday with it warming up, the snow got real slippery and unpredictable for racing. It was tough to be consistent and get traction. The roost was really bad.”

“On Saturday, I struggled through qualifying with my starts and dealing with roost from other riders. I was really focused on my start in the final. I picked what I thought would be the best spot to get the holeshot and it worked out pretty well. I was trying to get into the lead as soon as possible. I didn’t want to wait any longer than I had to. I was getting roosted really bad so I knew I had to get out front to get clear vision.”

“I feel really good. With all the wins and big points lead it takes pressure off for the last two races of the season. I’m focused on finishing the series strong, rack up more wins and get the championship.”

Hibbert continues win streak at Eastern Snocross National

Monster Energy / Arctic Cat / Ram Truck’s Tucker Hibbert continued his win streak in New York by sweeping rounds nine and 10 of the ISOC National Snocross tour. Hibbert pulled the holeshot nearly every time he hit the track to win all four of his qualifying rounds and both Pro Open finals.

Seneca Allegany Resort and Casino featured a high speed, technical track and with warm temperatures throughout the weekend, snow conditions constantly changed. Hibbert adapted quickly to each condition and put down blistering fast laps both nights. His most impressive run came in Saturday’s 18-lap Pro Open final where he opened a five-second lead over second place by lap five and went on to lap up to fourth place before taking the win.

Hibbert now holds a 90-point lead in the 2016 championship title chase. The ISOC National Snocross tour will take a two-weekend break before hitting the final three events of the season. For more information on Hibbert’s schedule, visit tucker-hibbert.com.

 

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

“I really couldn’t have asked for a better weekend. This is the second national in a row we [the team] have been able to sweep qualifying and the finals. These weekends don’t come easy, especially now with the inverted start. Even with bad start line picks in my qualifying rounds and finals, I was able to pull almost every holeshot. That’s a testament to how good the guys have my sled dialed-in right now.”

“The track changed a lot throughout the weekend. The snow went from slippery to mealy to icy. It was tricky and really kept you on your toes. There were a lot of crashes throughout the weekend. It just wasn’t a track you could take chances on. I’m thankful I got good starts so I didn’t have to push past my comfort zone to get to the front.”

“Every year in New York, I’m blown away by how passionate the fans are. You don’t see that at any other event of the year. It’s fun to race in that kind of environment.”

“We’re deep into the season and I feel like before we know it, we’ll be at Lake Geneva. It feels good to have a good points lead I but try not to focus on points too much. With so many points on the line each weekend, you have to stay focused and not get ahead of yourself.”
