With a fast truck, impressive pit stops by the Turner Motorsports crew and the driver's own endurance, Paludo, who felt ill prior to the start of the Smith's 350, powered through a string of early-race cautions and recovered from damage received in a lap 116 accident to finish 11th in Saturday night's event in Sin City.

Miguel Paludo on driving at Talladega Superspeedway -
"This weekend's Talladega race is something I've been looking forward to pretty much since we left Daytona in February. The entire Turner Motorsports team was so strong when we went superspeedway racing at the beginning of the year, and I think that all three of our trucks had a chance to win that day. I'd like to get another pole and finish what we started in February."
