For the past several years Arctic Cat racing legend and engineer Kirk Hibbert has made a point of selecting the production Sno Pro 600 race sled for his son, No. 68 Tucker Hibbert, with the serial number that ends with “68.”
With the 2010 Sno Pro models on the production line now at Arctic Cat’s factory in Thief River Falls, Minnesota, there was a concerted effort to mark the occasion. A sign was made and attached to the sled, indicating the hope — and pride — the company feels for its most-decorated racer.
Then, knowing that Kirk and Tucker will powdercoat (in black) all of the green-painted production parts, each person on the assembly line signed his or her name on the green parts to wish them the best of luck this coming season.
Tucker will kick off the snocross season at the International Series of Champions snocross opener, November 27-29 at Spirit Mountain in Duluth, Minnesota.
