CHASSIS HISTORY: The No. 7 team will unload chassis No. 065; this truck last competed at Pocono Raceway where Paludo earned a 19th-place finish. This truck also competed earlier this season at Charlotte Motor Speedway where Paludo was running in the top-10 when mechanical problems plagued the No. 7 team.

PREVIOUS RACE RECAP: Last week at Kentucky Speedway, Paludo scored a 25th-place finish after an on track incident took Paludo out of contention on lap 50 of the 150-lap event. Paludo and the No. 7 were able to return to the track after making repairs in the garage area. The extra effort by the team earned them two additional positions on the track.

Miguel Paludo Talks about Las Vegas Motor Speedway:

What are your thoughts about traveling to Las Vegas this week? Do you have a Las Vegas equivalent in Brazil?

“I’m excited, I have been to Las Vegas four or five times before. It is a very exciting city with a lot of things to do. No, in Brazil gambling is illegal so we really do not have any place like Las Vegas. The city is larger than life.”

What do you expect Las Vegas Motor Speedway to be like? Have you spoken with other drivers? What track do they tell you it is most similar to?

“I spoke with my teammate Timothy Peters and we discussed the track and its characteristics. He says it is most similar to Charlotte Motor Speedway. He told me there is a severe bump in turns one and two and that the real challenge of the track is getting over that bump. I was encouraged to hear that the track drove like Charlotte, the No. 7 team had a strong run going there until we had some mechanical issues. I’m really looking forward to racing at Las Vegas this weekend.”
