The Lone Stars...The NASCAR Camping World Truck Series (NCWTS) takes top billing this weekend at Texas Motor Speedway for a standalone race in the Lone Star State. Texas Motor Speedway (TMS) is tied with Martinsville Speedway and Kentucky Speedway as the track in which Miguel Paludo has made the most starts. In his five previous events at TMS, Paludo has earned two top 10s, with a best finish of eighth scored in 2011. Intermediate tracks have historically been good to the 29-year-old Brazilian, who has earned 10 of his 17 career top-10 finishes at tracks between one and two miles in length.
Hit The Brakes...The No. 32 Chevrolet returns to Duroline Brakes and Components colors this weekend at TMS. Duroline is recognized as a world-class company present all over the world with its products and services. It utilizes high technology for producing heavy-duty brake linings, guaranteeing high performance and durability on its products with very low noise level. It uses a patented production process called Wave Process which is ecologically correct and contributes to the environment preservation. For more information, visit www.duroline.com.br.

Paludo battled the handling of the No. 32 AccuDoc Solutions Chevrolet for the duration of the 200-lap race, putting him a lap down early in the event and ultimately resulting in an 18th-place finish at Dover International Speedway.
Miguel Paludo on driving at Texas Motor Speedway
"Texas [Motor Speedway] is one of my favorites of all the tracks we go to. We've been so strong on the intermediate tracks this year, both the No. 32 team and Turner Scott Motorsports as a whole, and I don't think this weekend will be any different. I've had this race circled on my calendar for a while now; I really think it's somewhere that we could get our first win."
