Miguel Paludo heads to Kentucky Speedway for the second of the season’s two NASCAR Camping World Truck Series (NCWTS) events at the 1.5-mile tri-oval. Paludo has participated in four previous events at the Sparta, Kentucky facility, tying it with Texas Motor Speedway as the track where he has made the most starts. In those four races, Paludo has an average start of 14.5, an average finish of 19.5, an one DNF. Paludo’s best start and finish were both scored with his No. 32 Turner Motorsports team earlier this year when he started fifth and finished 12th in the 150-lap June event.

Real Horsepower…Prior to hitting the track at Kentucky Speedway, Paludo and teammates Nelson Piquet Jr., James Buescher, Justin Allgaier and Brad Sweet will head to Churchill Downs, home of horse racing’s most prestigious event and the first jewel in the Triple Crown of Thoroughbred Racing, the Kentucky Derby. The drivers will tour the 137-year-old facility which houses and trains world-class thoroughbreds year-round in addition to hosting live horse racing in spring and fall meets.

This Week’s Silverado…Paludo and the No. 32 Duroline Brakes and Components team will unload chassis TMS-216 for this week’s race at Kentucky Speedway. This chassis made its debut when the NCWTS visited Kentucky in the spring, where Paludo earned a 12th-place finish. The chassis also earned a top-10 with Paludo’s 10th-place finish at Michigan International Speedway last month.

Previous Race Recap…Paludo earned his third top-10 finish of the season at Iowa Speedway, closing up the points gap between him and the top-10 in the NCWTS driver standings. Paludo rebounded from an ill-timed caution, which put him two laps down, to fight his way back onto the lead lap and score a 10th-place finish.

Watch and Listen…The Kentucky 201 can be seen live on Friday, September 21st on SPEED. Race coverage will begin at 7:00 p.m. ET. The event can also be heard live on MRN Radio as well as Sirius Satellite Radio, channel 90.

Miguel Paludo on driving at Kentucky Speedway: “I’ve been really successful at Kentucky Speedway in practice and qualifying, but not really successful in the races. When we came here in the spring, it was definitely the best weekend I’ve ever had here. We led a practice, qualified fifth and finished 12th; our handling just wasn’t where we needed at the very end because of the changing track conditions. I’m feeling confident going into this weekend because we figured out a lot of things last time and our mile-and-a-half program has been so strong this year. This is one of the racetracks I love because I feel comfortable there, so I’m looking forward to going back and I’m hoping that this will be the weekend that is successful from beginning to end.”
