HISTORY(R) ANNOUNCES NEW SEASON OF ICE ROAD TRUCKERS PREMIERING SUNDAY, JUNE 9 AT 10PM ET/PT

NEW SEASON FEATURES ICE COLD RIVALRIES AND THE RETURN OF LISA KELLY

New York, NY - May 20, 2013 - The original hit series ICE ROAD TRUCKERS returns to battle more than just treacherous roads in an all new season premiering, Sunday, June 9 at 10PM ET/PT on HISTORY(R). This season, old rivalries hit an all-time high as two different companies with legendary truckers go head-to-head and try to put each other out of business. Also, after a year on hiatus, the queen of the road, Lisa Kelly, returns and chooses a side.

The battle lines are drawn in Manitoba, Canada. Hugh "Polar Bear" Rowland returns after quitting his previous job at Polar Industries and sets up his own shop right down the street. Bound and determined to reclaim his crown as "King of the Road," he poaches Polar's dispatcher, intent on landing as many loads as he can to force his old company into submission. Hugh rounds up the toughest truckers he can find and together with these new faces, they hit the winter roads. However, Polar Industries and owner Mark Kohaykewych aren't about to take this challenge lying down. To counter this threat on their turf, they enlist some of Hugh's biggest rivals. Ice road legend Alex Debogorski signs on to Polar, anxious for the opportunity to wipe out Hugh's company before it gets a chance to bloom. After a year hiatus, Alaskan trucking icon Lisa Kelly signs up with Polar as well, looking to conquer the new terrain of the winter roads just like she did on Alaska's Dalton Highway. Montana Legend Darrell Ward joins the crew at Polar as well, finally getting the chance to drive the deadly ice crossings of Canada.

Throughout the season, the rivalry between the companies reaches a fever pitch as every load delivered means money out of the other team's pocket. No assignment is off limits, no road is too dangerous and no ice crossing is too thin in this battle for winter roads supremacy.

This season also chronicles an eccentric mechanic way up north who dances to the beat of a completely different drummer. Joey Barnes, nicknamed "The King of Obsolete," fills his yard with trucks from the 1930's through the 1970's. Many of the vehicles are rarities, some he's re-engineered into his own unique pieces of equipment. And he's taken it upon himself to use his fleet of trucks to rescue those stuck in the most remote corners of Manitoba.

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 on the most dangerous roads in North America. 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.

ICE ROAD TRUCKERS is produced for HISTORY by Original Productions, a FremantleMedia Company. Executive Producers for Original Productions are Thom Beers, Philip D. Segal and Jeff Conroy. Jeff Meredith produces the series. Executive Producer for HISTORY is Matt Ginsburg.
