Last September, Morgan sustained a career-ending injury at the Montreal Supercross. Simply stated, Morgan is a motocross and snocross legend. He transformed the sport of snocross and to this day holds the most career national wins.
This is a one-of-a-kind helmet that you have the opportunity to own! You can bid on Hibbert’s 7c helmet on eBay. The auction runs until Tuesday, Jan. 13 at 12 p.m. EST. You can also bid in person at the Air Force National on Friday, Jan. 9 and Saturday, Jan. 10 at the Operation Inspiration 7c booth at Canterbury Park.
Arctic Cat, who was a long-time sponsor of Morgan, has committed to matching up to $1,000. Also, Shock Doctor is donating one of Hibbert’s custom helmet bags and a Power Dry Blower to the highest bidder.
“It means a lot to me to support Blair after so many years of great racing and friendship,” says Hibbert. “It’s been hard not having him at the races. It’s a huge hit for the sport and I truly miss him on and off the track. I’m excited and honored to have an opportunity to give back to him and support him in his recovery. It’s time for fans and people in the industry to step up and help Blair, someone who has done so much for the sport of snocross.”
Some the greatest battles in the history of snocross were between Morgan and Hibbert. They pushed each other in ways that may never be seen on the track again. On the track they were tough competitors but at the end of the day they were close friends and shared a mutual respect for one another.
All proceeds of the auction will go directly to Blair Morgan. Morgan is donating a portion of his funds to ‘Shoot for Cure’, an organization he has been involved in for many years that is dedicated to spinal cord research.
