Hibbert’s snocross season ends with gem
Team Arctic’s ISOC national snocross effort delivered its top performance of the season at the year-end event in Lake Geneva, Wis., with five victories across a range of classes and winning the coveted Pro Open championship.
Tucker Hibbert continued his one-man stranglehold of the Pro Open class with another powerful victory in the Friday night program at the Neilsen Enterprises Grand Finale at Lake Geneva Resort, locking up the points championship despite one more night of racing the following evening. A seventh-place start in the second final set up a dramatic come-from-behind charge that saw Hibbert narrowly miss his second victory of the weekend by just 2/100ths of a second.
“Once again we’re in awe of Tucker Hibbert. He dominated the Friday night program like he has done at nearly every race this season, winning by a huge margin,” Team Arctic race manager Mike Kloety said. “His seventh-to-almost-winning run in Saturday’s program was a huge win for snocross fans who were treated to another amazing display of speed and cunning to pass other riders on a one-line track that produced single-file racing most of the weekend. The drama of that final was exhilarating! And the success of his championship-winning was nothing less than incredible.”
