Racing in the chili bowl is a chance of a lifetime for every driver that competes.

For Bixby Native Taylor Reimer, it's just her second job in life.

Reimer is no stranger to the spotlight.

She grew up watching her dad race on dirt. At five years old, she decided she wanted to give it a try.

Reimer became an inspiration for girls everywhere.

"I just had a passion for it its so much fun its really cool to be a girl in this sport its a male dominated sport and I like to go out their and show everyone that girls can do this sport to," said Dirt Track driver, Taylor Reimer.

Reimer also excels away from the track. In the classroom, she carries a 4.0 GPA. On Saturdays in the fall, you’ll find her on the sidelines at Memorial Stadium as a Sooner cheerleader.

"I like to do the best in everything that I do whether its a team sport with cheer or if its coming out here there is alot involved and my team does a great job helping me out," said Reimer.

She is Port City Raceway's "all time winningest" female driver. She earned that honor at the age of 15 and she wants turn that success into chili bowl wins.

"I have a lot of laps around small tracks like that and I also think that boasts my confidence to," said Reimer.

Whether its flying through the air for Oklahoma cheer, or racing around the corner on a dirt track, Bixby native Taylor Reimer knows how to finish fast and strong.

"I'm really looking forward to tonight we practiced on Monday and it went pretty good so I'm confident in my team and my ability and hopefully everything goes well," she said.
