Miguel Paludo, a Brazilian native and seven-time Porsche Carrera Cup Champion, makes his return to JR Motorsports and the NASCAR Xfinity Series for the third straight season in 2023, piloting the No. 88 BRANDT Professional Agriculture Chevrolet in three road course events. Paludo’s NASCAR schedule will begin at Circuit of the Americas (March 25) and continue on the new street course in Chicago (July 1) before concluding at the famed Indianapolis Motor Speedway Road Course (Aug. 12).

Paludo enters 2023 as a seven-time champion in the Porsche Carrera Cup Brasil with longstanding partner BRANDT. Together, the pairing of Paludo and BRANDT have earned a combined five championships, 20 victories and 60 podiums in Porsche competition.

During the Nova Prata native’s first three races with JRM in 2021, Paludo found success, earning his first career top-10 in the NXS on the strength of a seventh-place finish at the Daytona International Speedway Road Course. In 2022, Paludo's best finish was ninth at Circuit of the Americas.

Overall, the veteran road racer has a strong NASCAR background. To accompany his tenure in the NXS with JRM and BRANDT Professional Agriculture, Paludo previously competed in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series, making 73 starts and competing in three full-time seasons from 2011-13. During that timeframe, Paludo notched a total of eight top fives, 25 top 10s and twice finished inside the top 10 in the championship standings.

When he is not at the track, Paludo enjoys spending time with his family and working on his health and fitness.
