Angela Ruch, the niece of former Cup Series driver and 1990 Daytona 500 winner Derrike Cope, is set for a full-time Truck Series season with Reaume Bros Racing, the team announced Wednesday.

Ruch, 36, will drive the No. 00 truck. This would be her first full-time season in a national NASCAR Series.

Ruch has 11 Truck Series starts with 10 coming last year. She made two starts for Joe Nemechek‘s NEMCO Motorsports, including a sixth-place finish in the season opener at Daytona, making her the second woman to earn a top 10 in the Truck Series.

The rest of her starts were with Niece Motorsports, where her best result was 16th at Kansas Speedway.

Ruch also has 14 Xfinity Series starts since 2011.
