Oklahoma Cheerleader Taylor Reimer Makes Her Midget Car Chili Bowl Debut Tonight

Oklahoma Sooners junior cheerleader Taylor Reimer will strap in tonight and unleash her midget car around the 1/4 mile track of dirt inside the Tulsa Expo Center during the Circle City Raceway Qualifying Night festivities at the world-famous Chili Bowl.

Reimer will be amongst racing industry royalty. NASCAR has entries from the likes of Chase Elliott, Kyle Larson, Ryan Newman, J.J. Yeley, Chase Briscoe, Ricky Stenhouse Jr. and Christopher Bell.

Racing since she was nine, Reimer isn't some charity case behind the wheel. “I won a track championship, and we switched to dirt and started running micro sprints. I got a second place finish at the shootout, and I am the winningest female at Port City (Raceway),” told the Tulsa World about her roots.

Reimer ended up at Oklahoma as a cheerleader, and she stopped racing until last summer when a local car owner gave her seat time and asked if she wanted to race in the Chili Bowl. Now here she is, in the granddaddy of all midget races.

Car owner David McIntosh seems fired up to see what his new driver can do against the big boys.

"She's really good in practice right now," McIntosh told AutoWeek. "As far as being smooth and technical, she has all the tools and she fired back where she left off.

"She dominated in her younger years, but we didn't know what she had after taking so much time off. But she's doing all the right things and is taking it seriously."
