March 17, 2014 – Monster Energy/Arctic Cat’s Tucker Hibbert finished a historic snocross season with three wins at the ISOC Grand Finale in Lake Geneva, Wisc. Hibbert clinched the 2014 ISOC Pro Open Championship Friday night with an exciting come-from-behind win and went on to claim the top spot of the podium Saturday and Sunday to wrap-up the season with 15 of 17 possible Pro Open final victories.
In his 14th winter racing in the pro class, Hibbert recorded his most successful season-to-date. In January, he eclipsed legend Blair Morgan’s long-standing snocross pro national win record to become the most-winning racer in the history of the sport. Later that month, he became the first athlete in history to win seven-consecutive gold medals at X Games Aspen. With his recent wins in Lake Geneva, he’s on track to claim his 100th pro national victory next winter – a feat nearly unheard of in the motorsports world.
Hibbert will now switch gears to prepare for his 15th summer competing in the AMA Pro Motocross Championship where he’ll continue to chase his goal of a top-10 finish in the premier 450-class. Stay connected to tucker-hibbert.com for details on his summer schedule and plans for next winter. \
Tucker Hibbert – #68 Monster Energy/Arctic Cat
“Lake Geneva was awesome this year. The snow conditions and weather were perfect. The track was super challenging. It was cool to see a big crowd all three days. The vibe was awesome and I had a lot of fun.
I’m really excited about how the season played out. It’s rewarding to have all the hard work pay off. The team is doing all the right things to reach our goals. I know we have to keep pushing to stay on top and I’m motivated by that challenge. We’ll be working hard to take it one step higher next year.
It’s awesome to see snocross growing and moving in the right direction. We’ve seen a lot of progression in the sport the past few years. ISOC is doing a great job putting on good events and to make live TV a reality Sunday was a big step. The sport has a bright future and I’m excited to be apart of it.
I don’t have my summer plans finalized but know I’ll be racing motocross and mountain bikes. I really enjoy competing in multiple sports and know it’s best way to be prepared for next winter. It’s going to be another summer filled with racing adventures and that’s just the way I like it.”
