Hibbert Hopes to Carry Momentum to SD

(Jan. 19, 2016) – Monster Energy / Arctic Cat / Ram Truck’s Tucker Hibbert is looking to carry his winning momentum to Deadwood, SD this weekend at rounds seven and eight of the ISOC National Snocross tour. Hibbert has recorded some of his most memorable races at Days of ‘76 Rodeo Ground’s bullring style track, including his jaw-dropping last to first place rally last year that marked his 100th Pro National win.

“I don’t know what it is about Deadwood but there’s always wild racing on that track – bad and good. Despite some bad races, I’ve had some big wins in Deadwood. Last year, winning my 100th race will always be one of my all-time favorite racing memories. I’ll never forget that night.”

Hibbert is hot off double wins at the Canterbury National. Immediately after the race, he moved his team and testing operations to Colorado to prepare for X Games Aspen where he’ll compete for his ninth consecutive gold medal later this month. Hibbert spent last week testing for X Games and will continue this week before traveling to South Dakota for this weekend’s event.

“I feel really strong right now. Canterbury was an awesome event for us [the team]. We came straight to Colorado and have gotten in some really good riding and testing for X Games. It’s a busy month with a lot of racing and traveling but I like when the season picks up like this. I’ve always felt like I perform well under pressure.”

Pro Racing action at the Deadwood Snocross Shootout takes place Friday and Saturday 6-9:30 p.m. Tickets are available online and at the gate. Fans unable to attend the event can watch live online at snocross.com/livestream.
