Facing a season expected to be one of the shortest on record, both teams are under pressure. At Polar, Art Burke fights to get back on the road after his truck crashes into a snowbank. Ice roads legend Alex Debogorski makes his triumphant return, facing off with an untested crossing. Looking to expand his squad, Polar boss Mark Kohaykewych tests out new driver Steph Custance. Across town, the competition pushes ahead as Lisa Kelly comes faces to face with a monster incline. And deep in the wilderness, Darrell Ward runs into long-time rival Todd Dewey.
