The Pro Stock final was part of the Eastern National Snocross, being held this weekend here.
After sweeping qualifying yesterday, Hibbert (No. 68 Monster Energy Drink/Arctic Cat) dominated the final, leading all 16 laps for his third Pro Stock victory in four starts this season. Ryan Simons (No. 67 Speedwerx/Arctic Cat) finished second, marking his second-straight podium this season. Blair Morgan (No. 7c Blair Morgan Racing/Ski-Doo) was third, earning his first podium of the year.
"The stock sled has been really good to us this year," said Hibbert. "We had a little bad luck at Duluth, but after that, it's been just awesome. The Pro Stock Class really brings out the best riders because you have to keep your momentum up and not get bogged down. You don't have the power to recover from a mistake."
Hibbert will bid farewell to the PowerSports Snowmobile Tour after this weekend, and will return to the AMA Supercross Series. Hibbert, however, thoroughly enjoyed his return to his Snocross roots this season.
"I've had a blast this season," exclaimed Hibbert. "I don't think you can win races the way we have without having fun."
Rome, N.Y. resident Zachary Roberts (No. 107 Arctic Cat) won the 120 Champ 6-12 final, ahead of Ithaca's Sherwood Hunter (No. 444 Arctic Cat). Maxwell Burrier (No. 525 Arctic Cat) was third.

Along with two full days of Snocross racing, the event also features a vendor's row inside the venue's expansive Event Center, demo rides of new snowmobiles from Yamaha and Polaris, and many other entertainment opportunities.
