HISTORY'S extreme trucking series is back with bigger bounties, tighter deadlines and ruthless new teams

"BIG RIG BOUNTY HUNTERS" RETURNS TO HISTORY(R) THURSDAY, MAY 22 AT 10 PM ET/PT

NEW YORK, NY - April 29, 2014- History is heading back to the open road and taking viewers on a wild ride with six teams of colorful characters, in Texas and Ohio, as they race against time and each other to retrieve hijacked rigs and cargo in BIG RIG BOUNTY HUNTERS premiering Thursday, May 22 at 10 PM ET/PT.

Every day hundreds of semi-trucks carrying valuable cargo loads go missing and trucking companies look to this group of truck hunters -who claim to be the best of the best- to find their stolen goods. Part truck driver and part bounty hunter, these two man teams will stop at nothing to recover millions of dollars of missing cargo and claim the bounty money. Since finding the missing cargo means a hefty payday and elevating their reputation in the world of truck hunting, the competition heats up in every episode of BIG RIG BOUNTY HUNTERS as the teams try to prove they are the fastest, smartest and sometimes just the luckiest of the bunch. This season will feature multiple truck hunts with three teams competing against each other in Ohio and three teams in Texas. Meet the Big Rig Bounty Hunter teams:

Shawn & Vince (Ohio): Returning cast members Shawn & Vince are considered the "team to beat" this season as they've recovered more loads in their career than most of their competition combined. Motivated by their education from the school of hard knocks, they are not interested in letting anyone take away their reputation or money.

Big T & Beck (Ohio): Big T and Beck are both veteran truck drivers in Ohio and have been dating for four years. They are the only Big Rig Bounty Hunter team with a female member which they believe works to their advantage. Beck proudly refers to herself as "the bait" as she can successfully go to locations and speak with male truckers without looking like a bounty hunter. Big T is a massive man but he can't claim to be the exclusive "muscle" on the team since Beck is a second-degree black belt.

The Wolf Brothers (Ohio): Dave and Don Wolf are identical twins and have been trucking together for over 30-years. They've spent the last few years chasing after missing trucks so that they can stay closer to home to keep an eye on their elderly mother. They dress the same so when they are on a hunt and dealing with an adversary they can appear to be one person while the other is recovering the load. Trucking and family is all they know - they are the nicest yet trickiest twins you'd ever meet.

Marshall & Korchenko (Texas): Marshall and Korchenko proved during season one that they know the truck hunting business and can recover important cargo. But the days of being the only team on the hunt when a valuable truck and load go missing are gone. They need to step up their game and protect their territory now that there's new blood in town. Marshall is a family man and loves all of his extended family members except one - his cousin Michael Hoffman from the competing Big Rig Bounty team of "Michael & Chad".

Michael & Chad (Texas): Michael is a truck driver, biker and proud Texan who is either your best friend or worst enemy. Michael is also the soon to be father- in-law to his partner Chad who is the Deputy Sheriff. They teamed up for Big Rig Bounty hunting to use Michael's biker contacts and Chad's law enforcement experience to beat the crooks. Chad's first job is to keep Michael out of jail and recover the missing trucks without breaking the law. They are the classic odd couple but have a talent for finding trucks that nobody else can.

Danny & Willy (Texas): Danny and Willy Holden are a father and son team that has been in the trucking industry for several generations. Danny's father is famous in Texas for registering over a million miles as a trucker. Both Danny and Willy want to carry on the prestigious Holden name as the premier Big Rig Bounty Hunters in Texas. They proudly claim to be the best at driving trucks, fixing engines and finishing fights. They do everything the "cowboy way," which means they do what they say and don't go home until the job is done.

BIG RIG BOUNTY HUNTERS is produced for HISTORY by This Is Just A Test Productions. Executive Producer for HISTORY is Julian P. Hobbs and Wendy Greene. Aengus James is Executive Producer for This Is Just A Test Productions.
