January 31, 2017 – Monster Energy / Arctic Cat / Ram Truck’s Tucker Hibbert will compete at the fifth stop of the ISOC National Snocross tour in Salamanca, New York this weekend. For the fourth consecutive year, Seneca Allegany Casino and Resort will host the only national snocross event to hit the snowmobile-friendly Northeast United States.
Hibbert is hoping history repeats itself this weekend as he’s won every final event held at Seneca Allegany Casino. Currently sitting third in the 2016/2017 Pro Open Championship, the 10-time and defending champion is focused on a strong weekend to continue to climb the ranks and take control of the championship chase.
Pro racing action at the Eastern National kicks off Friday at 6 p.m. and repeats Saturday. The event will be streamed live on snocross.com/livestream and delay broadcast on CBS Sports Network. For more information, visit snocross.com.
