March 14, 2017 – Monster Energy / Arctic Cat / Ram Truck’s Tucker Hibbert will race for his 11th Pro National championship this weekend at the final stop of the 2016/2017 ISOC National Snocross tour. Sitting 44 points behind first place and with 177 points on the line at Grand Geneva Resort in Lake Geneva, Wisc., Hibbert is still in the hunt to clinch the title.
Historically, the defending champion has had strong races on the Ram Truck Grand Finale National’s long, technical ski hill track. He’s spent the past week doing dedicated testing for this event and is confident in his preparations.
Pro racing action at Grand Geneva takes place Friday, Saturday and Sunday. Friday and Saturday’s races will be streamed online at snocross.com/livestream with Sunday’s race broadcast live on CBS Sports Network.
Tucker Hibbert – #68 Monster Energy / Arctic Cat / Ram Truck
On racing at the Ram Truck Grand Finale:
I feel really good about the race this weekend. I got in a lot of really good practice and testing in conditions similar to the race. I’m excited to hit the track and try my best to win this championship.
On racing on Grand Geneva’s ski hill:
I like that it’s a big track with room for passing. It gets rough. The up and down hills are really challenging and great for racing. Overall, it’s a super fun track.
On his goals for this weekend:
My goal is to win every heat race and all three main events. I need to maximize points to put myself in the best position to win the championship.
