This season, the Ice Road Truckers battle the farthest reaches of the North American continent. In Alaska, oil exploration is at an all-time high, and Carlile drivers are preparing for the busiest season in Dalton history. This year, they'll push past Prudhoe Bay and head out onto the remote oil fields of the North Slope. In Manitoba, Canada, warm weather has made the normally rough winter roads barely passable, and every driver will be forced to battle the thinnest ice the winter roads have ever seen. Veteran drivers Hugh Rowland, Alex Debogorski, Rick Yemm and Jack Jessee will compete with three newcomers in the dash for the cash.
