After bouncing from NEMCO to Niece last season, Angela Ruch has found a home in the NASCAR Gander RV and Outdoor Series. For the full 2020 season, Ruch will run with the Reaume Brothers in a No. 00 entry.
The Chevrolet will be the third team in the operation, running alongside of Reaume’s flagship No. 33 and No. 34. The announcement was made by the team, via Reddit.

Angela Ruch, the niece of former driver Derrike Cope, opened 2019 with a bang, surviving a wild Daytona truck race to finish 8th with NEMCO. It was her only top ten of the season in ten attempts. She finished 16th twice after at Las Vegas and then Kansas.
The 35 year old driver has also spent time in the Xfinity Series, making a few scattered starts per season over the last several years.
Reaume Brothers Racing provided rides for a number of different drivers last season, including Josh Reaume, Mason Massey, Jesse Iwuji and Josh Bilicki. 2020 will serve as the team’s third full time season.
