Monster Energy / Arctic Cat / Ram Truck’s Tucker Hibbert finished third in the 2016/2017 ISOC National Snocross Pro Open Championship with a solid weekend of racing at the Ram Truck Grand Finale National in Lake Geneva, Wisc.
The three-day event capped off another remarkable season for the 10-time champion.
Hibbert’s victory in front of a packed crowd Saturday night was the highlight of his weekend. With a second place start in the 14-rider, 10-lap final, he was in good position but, ultimately, strategy played a major factor in the race.
On lap six, the leader took the joker lane (an extended section of the track each rider was required to take once during the race), opening the door for Hibbert to take control of the race.
He took full advantage of the opportunity, laying down fast lap after fast lap to pull a comfortable lead over second place. He waited until the final lap to take the joker lane and secured the victory.
Recapping Hibbert’s 17th Pro National season, he tallied a series-high seven Pro Open final wins, 11 podiums and 14 top-five finishes. In the process, he added another career milestone to his record by winning his 125th Pro National race at the Eastern National in New York.
