At 21, Paludo and his brother Daniel competed side by side in a regional series of touring cars from Brazil. Paludo experienced success immediately, winning his fourth race in which he competed.
That same year, Paludo was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes. However, he did not let the diagnosis stop him. He continued to pursue his career while learning to deal with diabetes. In 2006, Paludo took his talents to the national level, racing in a Renault Clio, in which he took the podium twice. In 2008, Paludo graduated from the Porsche GT3 Cup Brasil, winning the championship, with three wins, two poles and 11 submissions in the top 3. Paludo repeated his performance the other year, becoming the first driver to win the championship twice in a row in history. In 2010, Paludo left the country where he was born to go to the United States and compete in NASCAR. Paludo started 2012 making history at the opening of the season in Daytona, becoming the first Brazilian to get a pole in one of NASCAR's three most competitive series.
