Paludo joins Turner Motorsports driver roster

Turner Motorsports announced on Monday that former Red Horse Racing driver Miguel Paludo has joined the organization to drive one of its trucks in NASCAR Camping World Truck Series competition in 2012. It’ll mark Paludo’s second full-time season in the series. Paludo will join fellow-Brazilian Nelson Piquet Jr. and James Buescher at truck drivers for Turner.

“I’m really excited to join Turner Motorsports next season,” Paludo said. “I’m grateful to Mr. Turner for the opportunity he has given me to drive for the team, and I’m looking forward to a strong season in 2012. I’m also thrilled to have some really strong teammates, and I’m excited to see what we can do to make next season a good one for Turner Motorsports as we make a run for the championship.”

During his rookie season in the Truck Series, Paludo notched three top-fives and seven top-10 finishes on his way to a 17th-place points finish in 2011.

“Miguel adds another dimension to our NASCAR Camping World Truck Series lineup,” truck owner Steve Turner said. “He has shown a significant amount of potential and is committed to making his mark in the NASCAR ranks.”
