No.
CentOS 6 will die in November 2020 - migrate sooner rather than later!

CentOS 5 is dead, do not use it.

What are you really wanting? Is there something specific you want from a newer kernel? Or is it just that you think newer must be better?

You cannot. If you want that kernel then run CentOS 8.

How do they know? Does "their card" mean their product?
If yes, then how they can possibly know that the device works in RHEL 8 / CentOS 8 if they don't have one?

As our moderator ( he knows much than many of us :) ) told, you need to be in driver seat & let your customer know if they want said kernel , they need to use CentOS 8 ...

Frankly, I don't care whether they solve their problem or not, but
I'm curious about how they created the problem (misinformation) in the first place.

Don't know if it's any help, ELRepo has some "newer" kernels:
