November 19, 2012 – Monster Energy/Arctic Cat’s Tucker Hibbert will begin his 2012/2013 snocross season Friday night in Duluth, Minn. This weekend will mark the World Champion’s 10th professional career appearance at the AMSOIL Championship Snocross’ (ACS) Duluth National.

Many of Hibbert’s most impressive wins have happened at this historic event held on Spirit Mountain, including a three-year streak of sweeping both Pro classes from 2008-2010. After finishing 4th and 3rd in last year’s final events, he’s determined to return to the top of the podium.

The 21st edition of the Duluth National will feature Pro racing Friday, Saturday and Sunday. Tickets can be purchased at the gate. Fans can watch all the racing action live on ustream.tv and catch complete coverage of the event on CBS Sports Network Dec. 30.

Tucker Hibbert – #68 Monster Energy/Arctic Cat
“Duluth is a cool race because it kicks off the new season. When I was a kid, I was always so excited to go to Duluth to check out the new sleds and watch my dad race.  Now as a racer, I feel the same excitement from the fans.

The Monster Energy/Arctic Cat crew has been working super hard on my sleds and I’ve got in a solid amount of riding time. Arctic Cat has an awesome race sled this year right out of the crate. I feel more prepared going into Duluth than ever before. I’m excited to get on the track and see how it all plays out.”
