Hibbert will pilot his 2009 Sno Pro 600 and try to repeat his success from last season. Hibbert won the 2008 Stock Championship and put on a dominating performance at ESPN’s Winter X games, capturing the gold medal by a large margin. It was the 24-year-old’s third victory at the event, the first coming in 2000 when he was just 15. Hibbert is still the youngest athlete ever to claim a Winter or Summer X games gold.
“I’m looking forward to racing in the new ISOC series,” says Hibbert. “I’ll be at all the national ISOC races leading up to the Winter X Games. This will be my tenth Winter X competition and at every one of them, I’ve chosen to ride an Arctic Cat. That’s a testament to the quality of Arctic Cat’s Sno Pros and their dedication to winning in the sport. I’m proud to be a Team Arctic rider and hope to lead the way to another winning season.”
“Tucker is one of the best racers to watch; he has a way of making race fans cheer for him that aren’t necessarily Arctic Cat loyalists,” says Team Arctic Cat race manager Mike Kloety. “We expect Tucker to do very well, especially with all the changes we’ve made to the Sno Pro 600. This combo should be stronger than anyone has ever seen.”
