The all-new Arctic Cat SnoPro 600 took the spotlight as Hibbert convincingly won both Pro Super Stock finals, marking the first-ever pro stock win for the new sled. Hibbert praised everyone at Arctic Cat in Thief River Falls for working so hard to create the new machine along with his team for the long hours of testing and fine-tuning. Hibbert was named the Air Force M.V.P. of the weekend for his professionalism and dominating performances
on the racetrack.

Next up for Hibbert is the West Yellowstone National followed by the most prestigious race of the season, ESPN’s Winter X Games. The reigning gold medalist is looking to add medal seven to his hardware collection.

“It feels awesome to get a pair of stock wins for Arctic Cat on the new sled. It’s a testament to how hard everyone has worked to develop it. I can’t thank my team enough for their long hours of testing and fine-tuning.

It’s been four years since I’ve been at Canterbury so to leave with my first-ever win and with the stock sweep is great. It’s first class facility and the fans were unbelievable.

After this weekend, we know where we are on speed and what we need to work on. I feel really confident heading into the rest of the season and know there are more wins to come for Monster Energy/Arctic Cat.”
