IT'S MAN VS. ALASKA AND THE CHANCE TO MAKE OFF ROAD HISTORY ON "ALASKA OFF ROAD WARRIORS" PREMIERING SUNDAY, NOVEMBER 30 AT 10 PM ET/PT ON HISTORY(R)
New York, NY - October 29, 2014 - The ultimate test of man and machine vs. the wild is coming to HISTORY(R) with the premiere of the new competition series ALASKA OFF ROAD WARRIORS Sunday, November 30 at 10 PM ET/PT. The clock is ticking as five teams compete against each other and the harsh terrain of Alaska in the pursuit of a hefty reward and the chance to make off-road history.
ALASKA OFF ROAD WARRIORS is an intense off-road competition series where five teams of two face-off in a grueling timed race across Alaska. Racing from the Pacific Ocean to the Arctic Ocean, this is a race, a competition, an expedition and an adventure of epic proportions. From the muddy terrain to the unpredictable wilderness, these teams will travel across eight of the most dangerous and rugged trails in the world. The trails will be divided into two legs and the team with the lowest aggregated time from all the trails will be named the winner. As they race against time - and each other - the perils of their journey will not only test their trusty vehicles but the teams themselves. Which team will be the victor of this quest to find out who can navigate the extreme wilderness of Alaska? Meet the teams of ALASKA OFF ROAD WARRIORS:
Butch "Big Dog" Evans & "Wild" Bill Coty - Despite having the skills that only 25+ years of off-road experience can develop, this veteran team plan to win by any means necessary.
Brent & Scott Leigh - These North Pole brothers believe off-roading is a way of life, not just a form of recreation. They're bold approach: Fire. Aim. Ready.
Carl Jantz & Rich Rudman - The only non-Alaskans, these 'outsiders' from Seattle have a lot to prove but are often referred to as "MacGyver" and the "Mad Scientist." They can make their home crafted jeep run with a paper clip.
Pete & Shey Lannigan - The Irish brother-sister team who has been at each other's throats since childhood but have each other's back till the bitter end.
Jason Beard & Glen "The Polack" Lucas - A former Marine and his loyal friend are the renegades of the competition but plan to put themselves on the map of hardcore off-roaders.
