Tucker Hibbert kicks-off snocross season this weekend
Nov. 24, 2014 – Monster Energy / Arctic Cat / Ram Truck’s Tucker Hibbert will kick-off his 15th professional snocross season this weekend in Duluth, Minn. Hibbert, 30, has been racking-up wins since he was a teenager and shows no signs of slowing down.
Last year, at the ISOC Duluth National, he hit the racetrack in full force by lapping the entire Pro Open field in the first final of the season, ultimately setting the pace for the remainder of the winter. He went on to win all but two Pro Open finals to clinch his eighth ISOC National Pro Snocross Championship and seventh consecutive X Games gold medal.
Now, he’s focused on a new record – winning his 100th Pro National final. With 95 pro victories to his name, he could reach this career milestone as early as the third stop of the ISOC tour in Shakopee, Minn. Jan. 7-8.
Pro racing action takes place Friday, Saturday and Sunday at Spirit Mountain. The event will be streamed live online at ustream.tv/isoc and delay broadcast on CBS and CBS Sports Network. Tickets and pit passes are available for purchase at the gate. For more information on the ISOC Duluth National, visit snocross.com.

“It’s hard to believe it’s already time for another season but I feel ready. Since we (the team) had such a successful season last winter, we have a great platform to build from. We got on snow early, have been making some adjustments and are confident we’re ready to go racing.”
“There’s something special about Duluth. The excitement level is always so high – riders can’t wait to get on the track and fans can’t wait to see the action. I think some of the sport’s most diehard fans show up for this race. No matter what the weather’s like, they fill-up the stands.”
