Feb. 3, 2016 – Monster Energy / Arctic Cat / Ram Truck’s Tucker Hibbert will return to New York for the ISOC Eastern Snocross National in Salamanca this weekend. In the three-year run of Seneca Allegany Resort and Casino hosting the ISOC National Snocross tour, Hibbert has won every Pro Open final held at the venue.
This weekend marks the middle of the eight-stop, 17-round ISOC National Snocross series. Hibbert is six-for-eight in the Pro Open class this season and already has a firm grip on the 2016 points championship. He’s won the last five Pro Open finals and, last week, made history at X Games Aspen 2016 by becoming the first winter athlete to win nine consecutive gold medals.
Pro racing action at the Eastern National takes place Friday 6-10:00 p.m. and repeats Saturday. Tickets are available online and at the gate. Fans unable to attend can stream the event live online at snocross.com/livestream.

“New York is always one of my favorite races of the season. Fans in the Northeast part of the country are really fired-up about snowmobile racing and they make sure you know it. It’s a cool feeling being around so many people who are passionate about snowmobiles.”
“I feel like we [the team] have really found a good groove. We’ve been able to pull off a lot of wins lately. My sled set-up is solid and everyone is working together really well. It’s a good place to be and I’m excited to keep building on the success we’ve had so far this season.”
