Paludo, who has two championships in road-course racing series, led 10 laps and survived an epic finish in the Chevrolet Silverado 250 at Canadian Tire Motorsport Park. The Brazilian finished third in the first international race in series history and first NCWTS road-course event in 13 years, earning four spots in the closing turns of the 2.459-mile track in the Duroline Brakes and Components Chevy.
Miguel Paludo on driving at Iowa Speedway
"I'm a big fan of Iowa Speedway; it's a track where I have consistently performed well since the beginning of my career, and it's a place where Turner Scott Motorsports has always excelled. We're bringing the same truck we brought earlier this season, and we learned a lot last time, so it's going to be even better this time. Our team is carrying a lot of momentum right now; we've had top-five finishes in three of our last four races and we're chipping away at the point standings. Our goal is to keep getting those top fives, keep having good points weeks, and hopefully that first win will find me."
