After a one-week hiatus, the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series (NCWTS) returns to action in the 2012 season’s second showdown at Iowa Speedway. Paludo has two previous NCWTS starts under his belt at the 0.875-mile facility, as well as one NASCAR K&N Pro Series East start, all of which yielded top-15 results. Paludo most recently finished 13th in the July race at Iowa, finished 15th in his 2011 NCWTS debut at the track, and recorded a 13th-place finish in the 2010 NKNPS East event. Giving 100%…In his three prior visits to the Newton, Iowa track, Paludo has completed 100% of laps run in each event. Paludo has tallied 601 circuits around the 0.875-mile tri-oval (400 in NCWTS action and 201 in the NKNPS East) for a total of 525.875 miles run in the Corn Belt. That number is equivalent to just over half the driving distance in miles from Paludo’s home in Mooresville, N.C. to Iowa’s capital city of Des Moines. This Week’s Silverado…Paludo and the No. 32 Duroline Brakes and Components team will unload chassis TMS-207 for this week’s race at Iowa Speedway. This chassis last hit the track in the series’ first trip to Iowa Speedway in July when Paludo started from the 10th position and brought home a 13th-place finish. Diabetes Fact of the Week…Don’t forget, Frontstretch.com writer and NCWTS supporter Beth Lunkenheimer is participating in the American Diabetes Association’s Step Out: Walk to Stop Diabetes and she needs your help. Lunkenheimer has chosen to walk for Paludo and his son Oliver, and has set a goal of raising $1,000 for the ADA.

Previous Race Recap… Paludo was poised for a top-10 night in the Jeff Foxworthy’s Grit Chips 200, but battled an incredibly free race truck for the entirety of the 130-lap event. Pit strategy allowed the No. 32 Duroline Brakes and Components Chevrolet to rebound and overcome a one-lap deficit, ultimately crossing the finish line in 16th at Atlanta Motor Speedway.

Watch and Listen…The American Ethanol 200 presented by Hy-Vee can be seen live on Saturday, September 15th on SPEED. Race coverage will begin at 8:00 p.m. EST. The event can also be heard live on MRN Radio as well as Sirius Satellite Radio, channel 90. Miguel Paludo on driving at Iowa Speedway: “I’m really looking forward to going back to Iowa Speedway for the second time. The more you race at a racetrack, you learn from it, so it’s good to be returning to a track we raced at so recently. We were pretty good there in July, and I think we’ve only improved as a race team since then. We need the truck to be a little freer this time. I was tight during the whole race last time, so we just need to get the truck to turn better in the center and keep the speed off the corners while taking care not to over drive.”
