Jan. 4, 2016 – Monster Energy / Arctic Cat / Ram Truck’s Tucker Hibbert is looking to take the top step of the podium Friday and Saturday night at the Canterbury Park Snocross National in Shakopee, Minn. With 110 Pro National wins to his name, Hibbert has had a solid but not stellar start to the 2015/2016 snocross season going 1-2-4-1 at the first four rounds.
The ISOC National Snocross Tour returns to action this weekend after a two-weekend break in the schedule. Hibbert and his team took advantage of the time away from the races to fine-tune his set-up. Confident in the gains made, the nine-time champion is entering the Canterbury Park National with a fresh mind-set and focused on taking a firm hold on 2015/2016 Pro Open Championship points chase.
Pro racing action at Canterbury Park kicks off at 6 p.m. Friday and will repeat Saturday night. Tickets are available online and at the gate. For more information on the event, visit snocross.com and canterburypark.com.
Tucker Hibbert – #68 Monster Energy / Arctic Cat / Ram Truck – “I’m looking forward to getting back to racing. The break over Christmas was good. It allowed us [the team] to really get in a solid routine at the shop and at the track.”
“The first two events of the season were okay but I wasn’t where I wanted to be. Instead of getting frustrated, I put all my energy into focusing on what I need to do to get better and how my team can help me get there. We’ve put in a lot of time testing and fine-tuning the areas that I know we weren’t 100 percent in. We made some gains that I’m really excited about. I’m looking at this weekend as a fresh start to the season.”
“Canterbury is always one of my favorite events of the season. From the track to the facility to the fans, it never disappoints.”
