Miguel Paludo, the 29-year-old Brazilian who finished 10th in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series this year, will return to Turner Motorsports for another season in 2013.
Paludo will continue to be paired with crew chief Jeff Hensley and will drive a No. 32 truck sponsored by Duroline Brakes.
This season, Paludo improved his average finish from 18.1 to 13.9 and had five top-10 finishes in 22 races. His best result of the season was a fifth-place finish in the finale at Homestead.
"I joined Turner Motorsports because I believed that it was an organization where I could race competitively, and I am very excited to have the opportunity to continue to compete for what was, without a doubt, the most successful team in our series in 2012," Paludo said in a statement. "The fact that we closed out the last season with a championship trophy and all three of our full-time trucks in the top 10 in points says a lot for what our organization is capable of."
Turner won the Truck title with James Buescher this season, which was only its third season of full-time competition. It won seven of the 22 races as an organization.
Next season, Jeb Burton (Ward's son) will also drive a full-time entry for the team.
