Tucker Hibbert of Pelican Rapids, Minn., was nominated for the Best Male Action Sports Athlete category in the ESPY Awards.

It’s Hibbert’s third nomination, and if he wins, he’ll become the first snowmobiler in history take the award.

Hibbert is a 13-time X Games medalist and a nine-time National Snocross champion holding over 100 professional national Snocross victories.

He was also the 2010 and 2014 FIM Snowcross world champion and has been voted the ISOC fan favorite rider the past two seasons.

In his 15th professional season, Hibbert won 13 of 17 ISOC Pro Open finals, recorded his 100th Pro National win with a jaw-dropping come-from-behind win in Deadwood, S.D. and won a record-breaking eighth consecutive X Games gold medal. The 30-year-old has no plans to slow down and is already working to improve his program for the upcoming season.

The ESPY Awards will be broadcast live at 7 p.m. July 15 on ABC.
