My Formula 5000
Dr. Gordon Meffert, presently serving in the U.S. Navy as a dentist,
launched his professional career on the L&M Championship series
circuit last year(1973), driving a McRae in three events and finishing
one in seventh place. As a dental student. Meffert began racing in May
of 1970. He competed in his first National event in August a year later,
winning that race and two others to earn enough points to attend the
American Road Race of Champions. There, Meffert drove his B
production Cobra to the runner-up position which, along with his
previous record, earned him the 1971 SCCA Rookie of the Year
award. In 1972, he found time to compete in a few events and earn his
degree in dental science. When he began racing in ‘70, he had a
friend, Wendall Hottman, formed Wengor racing which Meffert hopes
will lead to the ability and opportunity to build and market Formula
5000 cars.
