Angela Ruch will return to the NASCAR Gander RV & Outdoors Truck Series Saturday at Kentucky Speedway, with a new paint scheme on-board her No. 00 Chevrolet Silverado.
Ruch – the primary driver for Reaume Brothers Racing’s No. 00 — will partner up with The Wounded Blue, America’s only national organization committed to assisting officers that are injured in the line of duty.
Ruch’s Chevrolet Silverado will feature a #BackTheBlue themed truck in Saturday’s event at Kentuck Speedway, including The Wounded Blue’s logo and motto – “Never Alone, Never Forgotten.” — with the popular “The Blue Line” American flag and a message on the rear bumper to “Support Our Police”
Ruch is one of the top female drivers in NASCAR’s truck racing division — one of three divisions within NASCAR. She and her husband, stars of the Facebook Watch reality TV show “The Ruch Life” came up with the idea as a way to support frontline law enforcement officers.
“Everywhere you turn today, good, hardworking police officers are under attack,” said driver Angela Ruch. “We want to show law enforcement officers that we’ve got their backs.”
“We appreciate the support of Angela and her ability to use her large platform for good, to aid officers who have been injured in the line of duty,” said Lt. Randy Sutton, founder of The Wounded Blue. “We’re grateful for her leadership and courage in wearing her heart on her sleeve in a way that will help thousands of wounded men and women.”
Thousands of frontline officers are injured every year during routine traffic stops and in their daily duties. Their injuries including being shot, stabbed, beaten, hit by cars, exposed to COVID-19, and more.
