HISTORY(R) ANNOUNCES NEW SEASON OF "ICE ROAD TRUCKERS"

Premieres Sunday, June 3, 9pm ET/PT

THIS SUMMER THE CRACK IS BACK AND FOR THE FIRST TIME EVER IRT VENTURES ACROSS THREE ROADS MORE ICE CROSSINGS THAN EVER BEFORE

New York, NY - May 21, 2012 - ICE ROAD TRUCKERS returns Sunday June 3, 9pm ET/PT. This summer, IRT pushes farther north than ever before, new roads, new ice, and a whole new set of treacherous challenges. This season, the drivers will face three roads, the most ever encountered on IRT. The weather is the massive protagonist, as the Dalton faces the worst storms in recent times, while the guys in Manitoba are racing against ice literally melting under their wheels.

IRT vets Hugh Rowland, Alex Deborgorski and Rick Yemm are back, with Hugh and Rick handling the deadly roads of Manitoba Canada. The Manitoba Winter Roads are 1,400 miles of twisting ice roads through some of the most remote and unforgiving terrain on the planet. The roads are marked by axle-crushing frost heaves, heart stopping ice crossings and frozen swampland. But this year, unseasonably warm weather is melting the snow and ice, making for very intensely precarious conditions.

Alex is given the most dangerous assignment yet as he's charged with hauling supplies up the Dempster Road, a road which connects the Klondike Highway in the Yukon to Inuvik, in the Northwest Territories and a road few have dared to travel! Many lives and livelihoods have been lost on the Dempster. Alex has the trust and the chops, will he live up to those expectations.

The stakes are just as high for Hugh who has even more "skin in the game" as he partners up with a local trucking company in season six. He and Rick join forces to tackle the winter roads.

On the Dalton, crazy and treacherous winter weather has created the most dangerous conditions in years as new faces emerge and an old veteran returns! Former reigning "King of the Haul Road" Jack Jesse is back. Jack is the undeniable leader at the start, heading a pack of three new drivers who will all take on the Dalton. The "Rookies" are Daryl Ward from Montana, who's newly divorced, looking to make as much money as humanly possible so that he can one day set up a business for his son. Ron "Porkchop" Magnum joins IRT from South Carolina. His own dad left him when he was a young boy, Ron is determined to give his own kids a stable life. But this is very foreign territory for Ron. Can he last the season is the question on his mind. Finally, Austin Wheeler is the young gun. At 22 years, he's out to prove that age doesn't mean a thing when it comes to heavy hauling on the Dalton.

ICE ROAD TRUCKERS is a classic story of adventure, perseverance, human ingenuity and most importantly, danger. One miscalculation of the road, bad weather or an unseen road hazard can be the difference between life and death. Even the most seasoned drivers will find themselves challenged by the conditions, isolation and lack of creature comforts. Although technology has changed how people deal with the conditions of the Arctic Circle, the people of the region cling to their deep roots and traditions of which ice road trucking has been an integral part for many generations.
