Plenty of cheerleaders have been unable to cheer on the field for their teams this college football season. This is something that they love to do, and as a result of not being able to cheer and remain competitive, some have pivoted to completely different activities. For OU cheerleader Taylor Reimer, she got into the race game.

Via Tulsa World:  

“I have been cheering at OU for three years on the co-ed squad and we competed at nationals before I moved to the all-girl squad,” Reimer explained. “Last year we placed second (to Alabama) in the nationals.”

Now, because of the COVID-19 pandemic, all that has changed.

“This year it has been a lot different,” she said. “For football, we have not been able to be on the field. We had to split up and had to be in the stands. We could not travel with the football team.”

However, when one door closes another one opens. The added free time gave Reimer an opportunity to return to her roots. Now, Reimer is hoping OU fans and her teammates will be cheering her on when she climbs behind the wheel of a 400 horsepower midget this week at the Chili Bowl Midget Nationals.

The cars competing in the Chili Bowl don’t have start buttons or keys.

They are started by being pushed by larger vehicles until they can be shoved into gear, forcing them to start.

Sounds like a lot of fun.
