When asked about the warp on the truck Ruch said, “Everywhere you turn today, good, hardworking police officers are under attack. 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.”
Ruch is one of the top female drivers in the NASCAR truck series. She and her husband star in a Facebook Watch reality TV show “The Ruch Life” and came up with the idea together to support law enforcement.
