As you can see at http://springdale.math.ias.edu/data/RedHat/rhel/rc/7/Client/x86_64/os/release-notes/Red_Hat_Enterprise_Linux-Release_Notes-7-en-US-0/#discontinued-kernel-drivers (section 4.4 ) ( which is a mirror of the documentation that was published by RH when RHEL7 beta was made available ), suport for your card ( aic7xxx ) was discontinued. Unfortunately this piece of info does not longer seem to be available directly from RH ( at least not for non-subscribers )

The best CentOS can do for you is to include it in the centosplus kernel ( assuming it is not already included ).

An alternate approach would be to contact elrepo.org and see if if it is possible for them to ship this driver as a kmod ( kernel module ) package.

OTOH given that CentOS 6 is supported till 2020, you could just use that instead of 7
