The 19-time winner in the Brazilian GT3 does a solid top-10 job in NASCAR’s premier truck series.
I can only imagine how this guy felt as he made his first lap at Bristol, don’t know if this was the best place for a driver from another land to make his debut.
He most have felt like he was in a far away land, or Mars. just kidding Bristol, I just love you!
You know what I’m saying, Bristol got to be hell on earth for an experienced driver, let alone a rookie from Brazil.
Here are some quotes from a Germain Racing media release:
“Since I was a little boy, I have dreamed of being a professional race car driver, and my goal has been to race in NASCAR," said Paludo, a native of New Silver, Brazil. "I often get asked about driving in open-wheel competition, but, for me, my love is truly stock car racing. The NASCAR Camping World Truck Series will provide a great ’next step’ for me in developing my NASCAR career. I’m looking forward to driving the No. 77 Stemco Duroline Tundra for Germain Racing at such a great track as Bristol Motor Speedway."
Here is a quote from Mike Hillman Jr., crew chief of the Germain Racing No. 30 Toyota:
"Miguel has been very quick to adapt to the oval race tracks. He has been consistent and competitive each time he is behind the wheel of his Toyota and his communication with his crew has gotten better each race. We look forward to continuing to see his NASCAR career develop with Germain Racing."
Miguel Paludo looks to have his bosses attention, that will get him lots of help.
Boa sorte Senhor Miguel Paludo.
