HISTORY ANNOUNCES NEW SEASON OF "ICE ROAD TRUCKERS"

Premieres Sunday, June 5, 9pm ET/PT

THIS SUMMER THE 'DASH FOR CASH' GETS PERSONAL AS THE U.S. TRUCKERS AND THE LEGENDARY CANADIAN DRIVERS DUKE IT OUT ACROSS TWO COUNTRIES

ITS TWICE THE ICE DOUBLE THE DANGER

New York, NY - May 19, 2011 - ICE ROAD TRUCKERS returns Sunday June 5, 9pm ET/PT but this summer, the Dash for the Cash gets personal, as a split between HISTORY'S bravest drivers becomes a grudge match on ice across two countries.

Outsiders in Alaska last year, IRT vets Hugh Rowland, Alex Deborgorski and Rick Yemm set out on their own, determined to prove there's more cash and more danger on Manitoba's treacherous Winter Roads in 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 the drivers on Alaska's deadly Dalton won't go down without a fight. Joining the "Leading Lady of the Dalton", Lisa Kelly, is Carlile ace and single dad, Tony Molesky and IRT Deadliest Roads veteran Dave Redmon. Plus, there's a new female trucker in town, an ambitious rookie from New York City, Maya Sieber. With pride and cash on the line, each side is driven to prove they're best, and there's no telling which truckers will take the season.

ICE ROAD TRUCKERS is a classic story of adventure, perseverance, human ingenuity and most importantly, danger. Hundreds of talented truckers have lost their lives trying to navigate this virtual obstacle course. 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.

Only the most experienced truckers would dare to drive this route where big rigs slide off 100 foot cliffs, come head-on with other trucks around hairpin curves, and where whiteouts, avalanches and -70 degree temperatures are just a few of the fearsome challenges encountered on a daily basis. Could this be the end of the road for some of the drivers?

Debuting in June 2007, ICE ROAD TRUCKERS quickly became a critical and ratings success for HISTORY with a passionate fan base. 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 and Philip D. Segal. Jeff Conroy and Gayle Gilman are Co-Executive Producers. Executive Producer for History is Matt Ginsburg.
