Sunday morning notebook in Duluth

It’s Sunday, and we’re getting ready to head to the track. Here are some quick notes from yesteday:

  • Tucker Hibbert’s victory in Pro Stock is his 47th Pro victory in the national snocross scene, according to ISOC officials. Even more impressively, it continues an unbeaten string for the racer that goes back a couple years. He won every regular season Pro final he entered last year, and won the ESPN Winter X Games before leaving to go chase his motocross dreams.
  • Today is the Pro Open class, but it likely will be run without the defending points champion, TJ Gulla. Gulla left the track on a stretcher yesterday afternoon after being hit in the head by a passing sled as he scrambled to get off the track after a crash. Unofficial reports say that Gulla did wake at the hospital and does have use of all of his limbs, which is obviously fabulous news after a scary looking crash.
  • The crowd is down slightly here in Duluth due to the move from Thanksgiving weekend until now due to the weather, but it’s still quite impressive. And the biggest crowd, we’re sure, will show up today.
  • Check back later today for a rundown of Pro Open and Semi-Pro Stock — we’ll be posting updates from the media room right at Spirit Mountain.
