My Formula 5000
Gerard Raney, owner of Cal Dyno Engineering in Redwood City, is
often seen in SCCA’s Formula 5000 series in his Eagle-Chevrolet. Last
season, he raced in four events, finishing four of them and tied for I6th
in the championship standings. 1971 is his best season to date in the
series, starting seven of the eight contests and finishing those seven
to place 11th in the standings. Raney began racing in the early ‘60s,
campaigning an E production Porsche in SCCA amateur races. In
1966, he was invited to the American Road Race Of Champions,
placing 5th in the E production event and two years later he finished
third, also in E production. In 1970, he competed in the big-bore
formula event finishing fifth. Raney holds a B.A. degree in geology
