Taming the Monster...The NASCAR Camping World Truck Series (NCWTS) heads to Dover International Speedway where Miguel Paludo will attempt to tame the 'Monster Mile' for the third time in his career. In his two previous starts at the 1-mile oval, the 29-year-old Brazilian's best performance came in 2012. Paludo started the race ninth and ran in the top five for much of the event before rain shortened the race, resulting in a 12th-place finish for the Turner Scott Motorsports team.

Previous Race Recap...Paludo and the No. 32 Turner Scott Motorsports team continued their strong start to the 2013 season, exhibiting clever strategy and skillful driving in the fifth race on the NCWTS schedule at Charlotte Motor Speedway. Earning their third top-10 start of the year, Paludo went on to lead 33 laps and dominate on late restarts before bringing home a seventh-place finish in the Levine Children's Hospital Chevrolet. As a result, the team gained three spots in the NCWTS Driver Point Standings, advancing to ninth, just three points behind eighth and 10 points behind seventh.
Miguel Paludo on driving at Dover International Speedway
"Dover is a lot of fun, and we ran really well there last year. If the rain hadn't cut the race short when we were off-cycle, we probably would have wound up with a top-five finish. This is a strong track for Turner Scott Motorsports as a whole, so I feel really confident going into this weekend. The No. 32 team has been doing so well this season; we haven't gone into a single race that we couldn't have won. We were so close that we could taste in in Charlotte; our first win is coming. I'd love to take home that Miles the Monster trophy."
