Roper Racing Team Headquarters is based in Mont Belvieu, Texas, just outside of Houston, Roper Racing fields the No. 04 Ford F-150 truck. The core of the team has worked with Cory for many years. Not only are they all hard workers, many friends and family members, who work all day at their regular jobs but stay late nights at the race shop because they are dedicated to the success of the team.
Season 2020 marks the 3rd year in the NASCAR Truck Series for Cory Roper. Roper is not only the driver but the Team owner as well.
Driving in Nascar has been a lifelong dream for Roper.
Cory has been around race cars and working in a race shop most his life. He grew up watching his dad, Kenny Roper, compete. At the age of 14, Roper got his first race car and started competing on a local and regional level at short tracks in Texas and Oklahoma where he won points and track championships. After purchasing trucks and equipment from another Nascar team in 2018, Roper made the decision to build a truck team himself through his construction business, Preferred Industrial Contractors (PIC), that he started over 10 years ago.
