Ram-sponsored Snocross Champion Tucker Hibbert recently sent us this update regarding a recent AMSOIL performance. We hope you enjoy reading about his success as much as we do. If so, stay tuned to RamZone – we’ll post updates from Hibbert and his team as new details continue to roll in.
Tucker Hibbert nailed a near-perfect weekend at Blackjack Ski Resort in Bessemer, Mich. The third and fourth rounds of AMSOIL Championship Snocross (ACS) featured one of the biggest, roughest tracks in ACS history. Hibbert won three of four qualifying rounds and commanded both final events.
Friday night, Hibbert swept the qualifying races and, with a flat-out freight train of a run in the final, won his first main event of the 12/13 season by 32 seconds. He started Saturday with the same domination, but, while leading his second qualifier, he cased a roller on the deep downhill section and lost control only one corner away from the checkers. With a 1-4 qualifying score, he was awarded seventh pick for the 15-rider final. He chose a make-or-break starting position by lining up on the far outside. He railed the first corner, roared up the hill and never looked back to capture his first final event sweep since the 10/11 season.
Hibbert entered the weekend fifth in the Pro Open points championship. He cut more than half the deficit and now sits second with 155 points, just 10 points behind leader Robbie Malinoski. Next up for Hibbert are ACS rounds five and six at Canterbury Park in Shakopee, Minn., January 4 and 5.
