Hibbert is continuing his career-long partnership with Team Arctic and will be piloting the second generation of the SnoPro 600 in both the Pro Super Stock and Pro Open classes. He will compete in the first four rounds of the newly formed AMSOIL Championship Snocross Series (ACSS) and ESPN’s Winter X Games 13. He will forgo the final four rounds of the ACSS to focus on motocross racing.
Hibbert also announced Arctic Cat’s sponsors for the upcoming snocross season. Monster Energy will serve as title sponsor for the fourth consecutive year and will continue to support Hibbert year-round in motocross. Six years ago, when Monster Energy was in its infancy, Hibbert signed on to run the glowing ‘M’ on his helmet.
New to Monster Energy/Arctic Cat this year are FOX Racing Shox and Shock Doctor. This winter Hibbert will be racing with FOX Racing Shox’s FLOAT X Evol ski shocks and Zero X skid frame shocks. Based out of Plymouth, Minn., Shock Doctor is on the cutting edge of sports protective equipment. Better known in ‘stick and ball’ sports, Shock Doctor is aiming to expand its products into the powersports arena. Hibbert is working closely with the crew at Shock Doctor to help develop and test new products and currently is using the Gravity 2 action sport mouth guard, core protective and impact gear, and Power Dry System bags and helmet dryer.
Returning to the team this season are Castle X Racewear, Stud Boy, One Industries Helmets, Spy Optic, Speedwerx, Kicker, Digital Ink Design & Graphics and Asterisk.
Hibbert and Monster Energy/Arctic Cat are set to kick off the season at round one of the ACSS tour in Duluth, Minn. Nov. 28-30.
