X Games Snocross favorite Hibbert readies for record ride in Aspen

Superman! Many may seek the title, but few actually earn it. Tucker Hibbert is one of the talented few!

This snowmobile-racing ‘phenom’ from Minnesota has defied both gravity and age over the years to become the ‘man to beat’ on the Snocross circuit. And, he shows no signs of slowing down.

At 15, he became the youngest male competitor to win a Winter X Games gold medal. In 2015, at 30 years old, he became the oldest competitor to win Snocross gold, his eighth straight X Games Snocross win.

On Thursday, January 26, Monster Energy/Artic Cat/ Ram Truck’s Hibbert goes for another career milestone – his 10th consecutive Winter X Games gold medal. It’s a challenge he says he’s more than ready for.

“It’s no different going for the 10th than going for the first. I have to go in ready to battle to the finish. It’s easy to get caught up in the hype and excitement of what’s going on, but I need to stay focused on the goal in front of me and that’s what I plan to do.”

Hibbert’s medal count to date has already earned the racer the hands-down reputation as the greatest rider in Snocross history.

  • 9 X Games Snocross gold medals
  • 114 national Snocross wins
  • 9 national titles and 2 FIM World Snocross titles
  • 14-time X Games medalist

The game is on as the Ram Truck–sponsored Tucker Hibbert goes for gold medal #10 at X Games Aspen.

Hi, I’m Betty Carrier Newman. I know – three names! Just who does she think she is? I’m a native Michigander; therefore, I love all things outdoors, like hiking and off-roading. I work in Communications with the Digital Media team. Some days I produce video shoots, write scripts, voice and edit video for features to post to our corporate and social media sites. Other times I’m strategizing with the brands I support – Ram, Jeep and Corporate – to come up with attention-grabbing ways to tell their unique stories. Then there’s the travel - to places like Moab, Utah, and the Rubicon Trail in California - to shoot (and enjoy) awesome off-road adventure that I then turn into exciting videos to post on our sites. Routine? Definitely not in my world! Challenges, creativity, cool cars and trucks, exciting places – yeah, they’re in there! Oh, the three names? In an earlier life I was hired as the first major-market female TV co-anchor for the NBC affiliate in Detroit – Channel 4. My name was Betty Carrier back then – until I married and added the ‘Newman.’ That’s my story and, yes, I’m really enjoying my FCA ride!
