WE ARE STARCOM RACING
StarCom Racing, founded in 2017, is located in North Carolina and fields the 00 and 99 cars in the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series. New to the sport, but eager to succeed, SCR acquired a NASCAR Charter and is running a full 2018 season with the 00 Camaro, staying true to its passion for Chevrolet. Bringing new innovation and competition to the track, SCR is led by Team Manager and former Daytona 500 Champion, Derrike Cope.
The team is led by Team Manager, Derrike Cope and Crew Chief, Tony Furr. SCR hit the track in 2017 as a new team in the MENCS. SCR was formed after StarCom Fiber owner’s, William Woehlemann, Michael Kohler and Matthew Kohler, were the primary sponsor for Derrike Cope earlier in the 2017 season. The owners and board of StarCom Fiber, a New Jersey based Telecommunications Company, saw an amazing opportunity to join forces with veteran Derrike Cope to begin their own MENCS team.
After launching in September 2017, Cope pulled together a team of talented individuals and in just three short months, SCR debuted its brand at the Hollywood Casino 400 in Kansas and then again at the Can-Am 500 in Arizona. After ending its first season on a positive note, with a best 32nd place finish, SCR is looking forward to a successful season, not only on the track, but by growing strong relationships with its partners for an ultimate NASCAR experience off the track as well.
