Tucker Hibbert - #168
“I’m excited to get back to the races and focused on finishing the season strong. This is my 13th summer racing the nationals but it’s been a big learning year for me. Racing the 450-Class is no joke. Compared to my snocross team, I’m running a small program for motocross and it’s tricky to keep up with training, testing, track prep and traveling. I still have big goals I’m determined to reach in motocross and will keep pushing until I get there.”
In 2012 and 2011, he raced snocross at Rio Tinto Stadium near Salt Lake City. • In 2005, during a short hiatus from snocross, he lived in Lake Elsinore while competing in Supercross and Motocross full-time.
