BOISE, ID – November 14, 2012 – (Motor Sports Newswire) – FLY Racing is proud to announce Tucker Hibbert has signed a multi-year sponsorship agreement to wear its F2 Carbon helmet during the 2012/2013 and 2013/2014 snocross race seasons. Hibbert will debut his new helmet sponsorship at the International Series of Champions (ISOC) season opener in Duluth, Minnesota November 23-25. He will also compete in ESPN Winter X Games as well as select events overseas.
When asked about his new partnership, Hibbert said, “I’ve wanted to get involved with FLY Racing for a long time. I’ve always heard great things about the products and the people involved in the brand. We started to talk about the possibility of working together last year.” Hibbert wore the F2 Carbon helmet during the 2011/2012 snocross season and said, “I immediately knew I wanted to wear FLY Helmets moving forward. The quality of a helmet often gets overlooked by snowmobilers but it’s a critical element to both riding and racing.”
In addition to wearing FLY Racing’s F2 helmet during the next two snocross seasons, Hibbert will also wear FLY Racing motocross gear during select AMA Pro Motocross races. Hibbert’s motocross history includes eight AMA motocross 250 top 15 finishes, four AMA Supercross 250 top 10 finishes, one Supercross heat win, and six CMRC MX2 moto wins. “The FLY Racing brand has a lot to offer and I’m really excited to also wear their gear for motocross,” said Hibbert.
Once Tucker Hibbert finds a brand he likes and feels comfortable with, he likes to stick with that brand. He has raced Arctic Cat snowmobiles his entire life and has also been the owner and rider of Team Monster Energy/Arctic Cat since 2006. “Long-term partnerships are really important to me. I’m excited to know I’ll be with FLY Racing for the next two years and hope to continue to work with them for the remainder of my career.”
“FLY Racing is very proud of its newest partnership and wish Tucker Hibbert the best of luck this season and for seasons to come,” stated FLY Racing’s Rich Kumm.
