He DX regularly features The DX Diabetes Dish, a profile about life and life with diabetes. Here, we dish with Miguel Paludo, a 29-year-old NASCAR driver from Brazil, who lives life on the fast track! He finished fifth in the 2012 season finale at Homestead-Miami Speedway and was tenth in the final Nascar Camping World Truck Series driver point standings, his best NASCAR points finish to date. Just eight years ago, two important events happened in Paludo’s life: he won his first race in a Brazilian regional car tour series, and later that year was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes. Paludo is dedicated to diabetes advocacy, racing in Unite for Diabetes/International Diabetes Federation colors on his No. 32 truck, as well as featuring a World Diabetes Day paint scheme on his truck in November. Paludo lives in Mooresville, NC, with his wife, Patricia, and son, Oliver, who is also living with type 1 diabetes. He’s currently competing in NASCAR’s Camping World Truck Series.
