March 4, 2013 – Pelican Rapids’ own world champion snocross racer, Tucker Hibbert, is set to compete at his home race this weekend in Glyndon, Minn. Hibbert lives under 30 miles from Buffalo River Race Park (BRRP), making it an easy drive or ride to the track Friday and Saturday nights for the ISOC Ram Truck Fargo National.
Hibbert is having one of the most dominate seasons of his 13-year professional career. He has won nine of the 12 ISOC Pro Open National finals this season and currently holds a 73-point lead in the Pro Open Points Championship (498-425). With only two events left on the ISOC tour, BRRP is slated to host back-to-back nights of intense racing action.
Pro racing kicks-off at 6 p.m. both Friday and Saturday. Tickets are available at the gate or online at snocross.com.
Tucker Hibbert – #68 Monster Energy/Arctic Cat
“Racing this close to home is an awesome opportunity. I can’t decide if I’m going to drive my Ram Truck or ride my Arctic Cat RR to the track. I guess it’s great to have options!
I know BRRP has been working hard on expanding its facilities to host a first-class event. It sounds like they have a lot of snow so we (the riders) should have a wide, long track. I’m looking forward to racing in front of a hometown crowd!”
