Episode 1 Vern takes the gold lead.

Verns Track Kit

This is the DOMINATOR® Track System manufactured by American Track Truck in Chassell, Michigan for Vern Adkison, the Wild Ranger, of Nome, Alaska.  Vern needed a track system to transport his crew and gear to and from the dredge location during filming of the reality TV show, Bearing Sea Gold – Under the Ice, Season 3.

In January of 2014 the DOMINATOR® Track System was shipped by air cargo to Nome.  Once arriving, the track system was installed onto a 2003 Chevy Silverado 1500 Extended Cab Pickup.  Vern and the crew began running the vehicle right away and contacted American Track Truck to tell them how pleased they were!
