“I have a real commitment to make - a commitment I know many of you have been waiting to hear for a long time,” said Hibbert. “For the first time since the 2002/2003 season, I’m racing the full national series and will fight ‘til the end for Team Arctic to bring home the Pro Super Stock and Pro Open Championship titles.”
In Hibbert’s 11 years as a professional rider, he has only raced three full national seasons. Despite his past part-time racing schedule, he holds 55 national tour victories and four national championship titles. Hibbert raised the bar last season at the Winter X Games with his fourth-straight gold medal performance as well as winning his first-ever World title at the FIM Snocross World Championship in Mala, Sweden aboard his Sno Pro 600.
“Arctic Cat is happy to have Tucker racing the entire season. I’m guessing the other OEMs don’t feel that way,” says Arctic Cat CEO Chris Twomey. “This commitment is something Arctic Cat has been looking forward to as well as the allegiance of Hibbert fans around the world.”
“It’s great to have Tucker back on the track for a full season,” says Mike Kloety, Team Arctic race manager. “He’s a crowd favorite with a relentless drive to win. We expect quite a few podiums from him and his Sno Pro 600 this season.”
