Chris Coker was introduced to racing at birth. Dean, Chris’s father, raced off-road cars for years, competing in Class 1 Buggies and Trucks in events such as the Mint 400 and the prestigious Baja 1000. Nichole, Chris’s sister, was racing ¼ midgets on a national stage by the time Chris was big enough to drive. Chris started his career literally following in Nichole’s footsteps on the ¼ midget track, doing his best to keep up. By the age of 13, Chris was racing across the United States and in Canada. During this time Chris racked up over 100 feature wins, dozens of track records, and multiple point championships.

 

At 14 Chris moved on to kart racing in search of more experience and speed. In just 7 months of kart racing Chris had an impressive 9 wins in 10 starts, and won the Super Junior II Series Points Championship, after missing the first 4 races.  

 

At the young age of 15 Chris took to the professional ranks racing. Chris started 16 races in a Midget, driving for the likes of Dave Ellis, and the late Larry Young, of Young Racing. In his rookie season Chris accumulated 11 top 10's, 6 top 5's, and 2 podium finishes in addition to numerous heat race victories.  

 

As Chris came closer to graduating high school, his education took precedence. Chris turned to a much different sport in hopes of obtaining a college scholarship, golf. Chris didn't play a competitive tournament until the age of 16, but by the age of 17 he was a scratch golfer competing with the best amateur golfers in the state of Arizona. After playing one year at national power-house, Glendale Community College, Chris accepted a full scholarship to play NCAA golf for Texas A&M-Commerce.

 

Chris graduated from Texas A&M-Commerce in 2006 with a Bachelor's Degree in Business Administration. During his time in college, Chris was on the Dean's List, treasurer and recruitment chairman for his fraternity, and a leader on the Student Athlete Advisory Committee. He now works for defense industry leader, L-3 Communications as a Project Manager with the goal to one day use his skill, experience, and education as full time motorsports team owner & driver.  

 

In July of 2009 Chris Coker suited up for first time in 10 years. This time in a 700 horsepower ASCS Sprint Car, in which he had zero experience. His first time on the track would also be his first race. After qualifying for the 24 car feature (out of 37 cars) in his first attempt, he would start 24th and go on to finish 16th.

 

Chris competed in eight American Sprint Car Series events and one National midget event in 2009. In 2010 Chris looks find the championship form he had as a teen while competing in a mix of ASCS regional and National races, along with select National midget championships.
