‘Ice Road Truckers’ Episode Guide (Oct. 4): Art and the King of Obsolete Team Up

“Mother Nature Scorned” (10/04/15) – Darrell and Lisa struggle to make it home in the midst of an early thaw over hard-hit trails.

Meanwhile, Art and the King of Obsolete reunite to pull a giant double trailer over a slick path. Then, veteran Alex Debogorski races to deliver to a town in need before the road closes.

And later, Todd Burke finds a unique way to tackle a melted ice crossing.

Season nine of “Ice Road Truckers” begins a bold new chapter with a fierce battle for supremacy on the winter roads. After two seasons of domination, Polar Industries is back to defend its place as the load count champion. But Darrell Ward is out for cold blood, and he’s starting a new trucking company with his sights set on taking down the heavyweights at Polar. To help him achieve this, he’s out to poach Polar drivers and their loads.

It’s an epic battle of David vs. Goliath, as Ward’s tiny company takes on any and all jobs, no matter how far or how dangerous, to compete. Meanwhile, Polar boss Mark Kohaykewych – aided by trucking legend Alex Debogorski, seasoned pros Todd Dewey and Art Burke and new driver Mike Simmons – refuses to take the threat lying down.

Trucking legend Lisa Kelly can only swear allegiance to one company and her decision could upend the balance of power on the winter roads. By season’s end, these rivals will have to work together to move a load to one of the most remote destinations in all of North America, where even the big rigs aren’t permitted to pass – a multi-mile ice crossing over the frozen Hudson Bay! It’s a season for the ages, one that the drivers – or the viewers – won’t soon forget.
