Tucker Hibbert put his Arctic Cat on top of the podium at Canterbury

Press Release-

ARCTIC CAT PROCROSS ON TOP OF THE CANTERBUY PODIUM

Tucker Hibbert Leads the Team Arctic Charge at ISOC National Snocross

For the second time in the still-young 2012 ISOC National snocross season, Tucker Hibbert proved the power of the Arctic Cat ProCross chassis with a spectacular win in Pro Open final in Shakopee, Minn. The Arctic Cat/Monster Energy phenom delivered a jaw-dropping, come-from-behind performance that brought 12,000 screaming fans to their feet and highlighted his insatiable desire to win.

Team Monster Energy/Arctic Cat's Tucker Hibbert wins again

“That was one of the all-time great displays of power, determination and talent,” said Mike Kloety, Team Arctic Race Manager. “Tucker proved once again that he’s an incredible champion, and that the 2012 Arctic Cat Sno Pro 600 is destined for greatness.”

Joining Hibbert on the top step of the podium at the Canterbury snocross were Team Arctic pilots Tyler Adams, Trent Wittwer, Reid Runkel and Evan Christian. Adams continued his season-long quest to rule the Junior classes by taking the win in Jr. 14-15 and finishing second in Jr. 16-17. Wittwer’s victory in Jr. Novice 10-13 was his second of the season, further confirming his immense talent and drive. Runkel led a Team Arctic-sweep of the Transition Limited final, while Christian dominated the 120 Champ class.

Canterbury Park in Shakopee marked the third stop of the eight-race ISOC National Tour. With nearly a month until the next event, Feb. 3-4 in Farmington, NY, Team Arctic racers and crews will continue to test and improve the new race sled.

“We’ve seen significant progress with the new Sno Pro,” said Kloety. “Much of the improvement is simply getting more seat time with the new chassis. But we’re also learning improvements in calibration for specific conditions, which is a necessary process every time we introduce a new chassis.”

"Kind of wish Kyle Pallin and Cody Thompsen would have stayed in Pro-Lite (semi-pro) one more year. With injuries, we're short in those classes and I know these guys would be out there on top!"
When our guys have good results at the National level, it makes us more confident at the regional level. Great job guys!

Made the 900+ mile round trip drive to watch Tucker, worth every mile. What most don't know is this kid has a heart of Gold. After visiting with him after the race and getting photo's of him with my kids is a real eye opener in what he is made of.

John, do you know what happened with Carly Davis? She did so well the last few seasons in the Pro Womens class. Have not seen her listed in the results this year.

I know Carly raced a cross country in Alaska last weekend on a Ski Doo.

I believe Carly is a part of the CBR cut backs in there racing program. This is more than likey why we have not seen Ryan Simmons racing some Sno-x with the CC season being postponed so much. Frankly I'm surprised to see DJ Ekre racing some sno-x as that requires a stocker sno-x sled. You will only see 1 CBR big rig at the races and the 2nd stays home. They have the Finley/CBR 5th wheel trailer there but that I believe is Carl and Evens trailer.

Chuck: I heard that Carly wanted to stay up in Alaska this year, do a little XC racing mixed with back-country riding. Surprising that she raced a Doo last weekend, not sure what's up with that.

Chris: I think Ekre is racing a couple snocross races simply to stay sharp for XC racing. Also because Justin Tate was goading him into coming back to SX for a few races.

Carly took the year off to go to school and back country ride at home she has been logging alot of miles on Proclimb 800. The reason for the Ski doo last weekend in XC race it was all that was offered to her in AK.

Why did Ekre quit racing snocross? That's the story AI readers want to hear.
