Team Arctic’s ISOC national snocross effort delivered its top performance of the season at the year-end event in Lake Geneva, Wis., with five victories across a range of classes and winning the coveted Pro Open Championship.

Tucker Hibbert continued his one-man stranglehold of the Pro Open class with another powerful victory in the Friday night program, locking up the points championship despite one more night of racing the following evening. A seventh-place start in the second final set up a dramatic come-from-behind charge that saw Hibbert narrowly miss his second victory of the weekend by just two-one-hundredths of a second.

Team Arctic Race Manager Mike Kloety summarized Hibbert’s performance at Lake Geneva and the entire ISOC season: “Once again we’re in awe of Tucker Hibbert. He dominated the Friday night program like he has done at nearly every race this season, winning by a huge margin. His seventh-to-almost-winning run in Saturday’s program was a huge win for snocross fans who were treated to another amazing display of speed and cunning to pass other riders on a one-line track that produced single-file racing most of the weekend. The drama of that final was exhilarating! And the success of his championship-winning was nothing less than incredible.”

Other winning Team Arctic racers at Lake Geneva included Jay Lura who scored two victories in the Junior classes; Carson Alread in Jr. Novice 10-13; and Evan Christian in Jr. Novice 8-12. And Josh Zelinski captured the ISOC Pro Am Plus 30 high point title with his second place finish, capping a season of top finishes for the tough competitor.

“We take great pride in the efforts of our racers, teams and crews at Lake Geneva,” said Kloety. “Our improved success there, especially in the Sport and Junior classes, illustrates the depth of our team and the future of our program. This will be a great springboard into next season.”
