Feb. 23, 2016 – Monster Energy / Arctic Cat / Ram Truck’s Tucker Hibbert will hit the final stretch of his 2015/2016 snocross season this weekend in Michigan. With only three events to go on the national tour, Hibbert is focused on clinching his 10th national title.
For the third consecutive year, Soaring Eagle Casino and Resort in Mt. Pleasant will host the ISOC Ram Snocross National Friday and Saturday. Hibbert cited it as one of his favorite tracks of the season and enters this weekend’s race on an impressive win streak. So far this winter, he’s eight-for-10 on the ISOC tour and recently won his ninth consecutive gold medal at X Games Aspen.
Pro racing action in Mt. Pleasant 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.
Tucker Hibbert – #68 Monster Energy / Arctic Cat / Ram Truck
“I’m excited to get back to racing this weekend. Having a couple weekends off really helped us [the team] to regroup after being on the road for five weeks. We’re recharged and ready to hit the final three events of the season.”
“Mt. Pleasant is one of my favorite tracks we get to race on all winter. Since we started racing there, it’s been a big, technical track and I hope they can pull it off again this year. The weather has been warm but I heard they have good snow and the forecast looks good for this weekend.”
“Overall, I feel good about where we’re at this point in the season. I have a good points lead but know I need to stay focused on each race. We’re working hard and motivated to finish the season strong.”
What: Meet Tucker and test drive a new Ram Truck to get free tickets to the race.
When: Thursday, Feb. 25 from 5 to 7:00 p.m.
Where: My Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram (formerly Heritage Chrysler) // 4650 East Pickard Street Mt Pleasant, MI 48858
