Feb. 17, 2015 – Monster Energy / Arctic Cat / Ram Truck’s Tucker Hibbert will compete at the ISOC National Snocross Tour’s inaugural Chicago area event this weekend. No stranger to premier racing, Route 66 Raceway in Joliet, Ill. will host rounds 11 and 12 of the ISOC tour Friday and Saturday night.
Hibbert has been on a tear this season winning six of the nine ISOC Pro Open finals, his eighth-consecutive X Games gold medal and, most recently, his 100th Pro National career victory. Now, just past the mid-way point of the national tour, the 30-year-old Minnesotan holds an 86-point lead in the championship chase. With 315 points still up for grabs, he’s on track to clinch his ninth national championship before the close of the season.
Pro racing action will take place at Route 66 Raceway from 6 to 10 p.m. both Friday and Saturday. The event will be streamed live online at ustream.tv/isoc and delay broadcast on CBS Sports Network. Tickets can be purchased in advance and at the gate. For more information, visit snocross.com.

“I’m excited to race at Route 66 Raceway this weekend. It sounds like the weather has been good for snow making. There are a lot of race fans in the area so it should be a great event!”
“It was really nice to have a weekend off. We (the team) had been on the road for a long time so it felt good to get home and reset for the last part of the season. Even though we have a nice points lead, we’re not slowing down. We’re 100% focused on showing up to every event prepared to win.”
