‘Ice Road Truckers’ Episode Guide (Aug. 17): Lisa and Todd Tackle a Remote Road

“Blazing the Trail” (08/17/14) – With temperatures on the rise, conditions on the ice roads quickly deteriorate. The truckers from Polar and VP Express are pushed to the brink, crossing thin ice on their way to deliver critical loads.

Meanwhile, Lisa and Todd go where no other trucker this season has gone before, tackling a remote road that’s completely untouched. After cutting ties with Polar, Darrell races to deliver loads to make up for lost time. Art’s mishaps on the ice roads could cost him his job.

History’s original hit series “Ice Road Truckers” is going where it’s never gone before. From the most extreme weather in a quarter century, to the world’s longest winter road, the warriors of the ice roads will face their toughest battle yet – the polar vortex – when season eight airs Mondays at 10 PM ET/PT.

A weather system not seen in North America since the mid 1980’s, the polar vortex is wreaking havoc and doubling the danger, making it even tougher to keep the trucks on the road and above the ice. The weather isn’t the only challenge facing the Ice Road Truckers this season. They will be pushing deeper into the frozen frontier, pressing their luck on new roads.

For the first time ever, drivers will be hauling on the trail the Guinness Book of World Records named “the longest seasonal winter road in the world,” dubbed the ‘Ring of Fire Road’ for its treacherous passage that winds its way through manmade ice canyons and over deep water. These harsh conditions aren’t stopping Polar Industries and VP Express from backing down against the war that ignited last year.

Alex Debogorski, Mark Kohaykewych, Todd Dewey, Lisa Kelly, Darrel Ward and Art Burke are back and continue to be the rough riders of the frozen frontier and this season is a non-stop ride over extremely thin ice.
