Tucker Hibbert continued his win streak at rounds three and four of the ISOC National Snocross tour in Jackson Hole, Wyo. Hibbert looked at home on Snow King Mountain’s fast hillside track winning three of his four qualifying rounds and both Pro finals.
Friday night’s Pro final was one for the record books. After a 12th place start in the 15-rider, 22-lap main event, Hibbert put on one of the most exciting comeback rides of his career. Pushing hard early, he moved into ninth but then struggled to find opportunities to pass or make up time on the group in front of him. Something clicked on lap 10 and he started dicing through the field. With three laps to go, he passed for second and had leader no. 43 Logan Christian in sight. He followed Christian closely for one lap and in the final corner of the final lap, snuck underneath him at the top of the hill, made the pass stick and charged down the hill to the finish to take the win.
Hibbert had the race he was looking for Saturday night. Second off the line in the 15-rider, 22-lap main event, he took over the lead in same corner he passed Christian the night before, and was never challenged to complete the weekend sweep.
Hibbert now has a 25-point lead over second place in the points championship.
The snocross tour takes a break for the holidays and fires back up January 5-6, just outside of Minneapolis, at Canterbury Park.
