Tucker Hibbert Unstoppable at Traverse City Snocross National
February 11, 2013 – Monster Energy/Arctic Cat’s Tucker Hibbert was unstoppable at the inaugural ISOC National Snocross event in Traverse City, Michigan, winning all of his qualifying rounds and both Pro Open final events. Hibbert excelled on the wide, boomerang-shaped U.S. 27 Motorsports National track held on the grounds of Turtle Creek Casino and Hotel.
Hibbert kicked off the weekend by laying down the fastest practice lap Friday afternoon, setting him up for the top start-line pick for his qualifiers. He convincingly won both qualifying rounds. In the final, he got a third-place jump off the start in the 15-rider, 20-lap race. Before the close of lap one, he tucked under frontrunners Kody Kamm and Ross Martin in the corner before the finish line, passed both riders at the same time and made the move stick. On lap five, he blasted a burner of a lap and ran away for his 75th Pro National career victory.
Saturday was déjà vu for Hibbert. He set the fastest practice lap, won both qualifiers and went on to win the final by over 11 seconds, proving once again he is the man to beat on the ISOC tour. He now has a 62-point lead in the Pro Open Points Championship.
The ISOC tour will take a one-weekend break before heading into the final stretch of the season. Hibbert will spend his off weekend in St. Germain, Wisconsin, celebrating the Snowmobile Hall of Fame induction of his longtime friend and competitor, Blair Morgan.
