Let the noise begin! As you saw earlier in the show, the best SnoCross racers in the nation are in town for the ISOC Fargo National at Buffalo River Race Park. This weekend's favorite is racing a half hour away from his home.

Tucker Hibbert, a resident of Pelican Rapids, is a 6-time gold medal winner at the X Games. Just last weekend he took home his second World championship in Russia.

Tucker Hibbert – 6 Time X-Games Gold Medal Winner: β€œIt's definitely a dream. I grew up riding and racing snowmobiles. I'm really having fun with it. I never really expected to be able to race this much and travel all over the world and compete."

"I get a little bit nervous before every race. I think that's just part of racing. It's what makes it exciting for me. There isn't really any race that's more nerve-wracking for me than any other race."

"It's fun to be able to race close to home because there's a lot of people that wouldn't normally be able to go to the race when we're further away. So, I just try to focus on what I need to do and that's go out and go fast.”

Hibbert will race tonight and tomorrow.
