Monster Energy will serve as the team’s title sponsor for the fourth consecutive year and will continue to support Hibbert year round in motocross. Six years ago, when Monster Energy was in its infancy, Hibbert joined the Monster Army to run the glowing “M” claw on his helmet. Monster Energy is now the number one selling energy drink in the nation and its iconic “M” claw is recognized globally for its association with the world’s most talented action sports athletes.
As announced earlier, Hibbert is continuing his career-long partnership with Team Arctic and will be piloting the second generation of the SnoPro 600 in both the Pro Super Stock and Pro Open classes. He will compete in the first four rounds of the newly formed AMSOIL Championship Snocross Series (ACSS) and ESPN’s Winter X Games 13.
New to Monster Energy/Arctic Cat this year are FOX Racing Shox and Shock
Doctor. FOX Racing Shox is a long-time supporter of Team Arctic and an industry leader in suspension. This winter Hibbert will be racing with FOX Racing Shox’s FLOAT X Evol ski shocks and Zero X skid frame shocks. Based out of Plymouth, Minn., Shock Doctor is on the cutting edge of sports protective equipment. Better known in “stick and ball” sports, Shock Doctor is committed to expanding its products into the powersports arena. Hibbert is working closely with the crew at Shock Doctor to help develop and test new products and currently is using the Gravity 2 action sport mouth guard, core protective and impact gear, and Power Dry System bags and helmet dryer.
Returning to the team this season are Castle X Racewear, Stud Boy, One Industries Helmets, Spy Optic, Speedwerx, Kicker, Digital Ink Design & Graphics and Asterisk.
Hibbert and Monster Energy/Arctic Cat are set to kick off the season at round one of the ACSS tour in Duluth, Minn. Nov. 28-30.
Noteworthy: Authorized Castle X Racewear dealers are now selling the third generation of the Monster Energy/Tucker Hibbert Replica Suit.
