On the Dalton, it's time for drivers to step up or step out of the game. With tension on the road at the breaking point, one driver will walk away. Austin Wheeler is tasked with the biggest load of the season so far: an entire cabin, balanced precariously on an oversized trailer. But the news of Austin's entry into the world of heavy haul rubs Jack Jessee the wrong way – especially since the Ace been left out of the cabin move. But even with a regular load of freight, the Dalton proves to be a challenge for Jack when he battles oncoming traffic on a slick section of road. Carlile boss Lane Keator makes the call to put South Carolina native Porkchop in a convoy with Darrell Ward, hoping that Porkchop will learn something from the Montana log hauler. Darrell's looking to run fast and get ahead in the load count, but Porkchop is taking it slow and steady on his return to the haul road. The two Dalton newcomers go head to head on the road, only one will get his way, and the other will be left in the dust. On the Dempster, trucking legend Alex Debogorski races up the road before the gathering snow shuts everything down. But after being delayed by another driver, Alex is forced to face the Dempster's steepest grades in a blinding snowstorm. In danger of being stranded in the freezing temperatures, the grizzled veteran digs deep, but the strain may be too much for the legendary driver. On the Winter Roads, Hugh and Rick 's cement truck haul goes awry, putting the boys at odds with the law. After days of struggling to reach Red Sucker Lake to deliver their loads, now they're just hoping to stay out of jail.
