Previous Race Recap...Paludo appeared poised for another stellar night at an intermediate track after qualifying third at Chicagoland Speedway, but adversity struck early when Paludo was penalized for jumping the start when the green flag waved for the first lap of the race. After going a lap down from the pass thru penalty, Paludo fought his way back onto the lead lap and battled a tight condition before finishing 12th in the EnjoyIllinois.com 225.
Points Update...Paludo is currently sixth in the NCWTS Driver Point Standings, 83 points behind leader Matt Crafton. Paludo is just one point behind Ryan Blaney in fifth and 13 points behind teammate Jeb Burton.
Miguel Paludo on driving at Las Vegas Motor Speedway
"I feel really good whenever we have a mile-and-a-half track coming up, because I know that's where Turner Scott Motorsports and the No. 32 team excel. We've been really strong all year at the intermediate tracks, and we're bringing a chassis which has performed really well for us so far. These new generation chassis that TSM has developed are really stout."
