Floyd Anthony Raines (born April 14, 1964 in LaPorte, Indiana) is an American race car driver, previously driving in the 2007 NASCAR Nextel Cup Series for Hall of Fame Racing in the #96 Texas Instruments Chevrolet Monte Carlo. He also formerly raced for Kevin Harvick in the Nationwide Series with Tony Stewart and made his cup debut driving the #74 Chevrolet for the once famous BACE motorsports. He is a former National Touring Series champion in the now defunct American Speed Association and 1999 Rookie of the Year in the NASCAR Nationwide Series. In 2008, he drove for both Front Row Motorsports #34 entry and for Haas CNC Racing's #70 entry, both in the Sprint Cup Series. For the 2009 season, he will drive the #34 Chevrolet for Front Row Motorsports in the Nationwide Series, and will drive their #37 entry in the Sprint Cup Series.

In 1988, Raines competed in five ASA races, and then returned for his rookie year in 1989. In 1990, Raines moved to NASCAR's All Pro Series, where he won Rookie of the Year and finished fourth in the final standings.

He returned to ASA in 1991 for a four-year stint as driver of a new team formed by Ernie Roselli. In 1995, he had moved to join crew chief Howie Lettow and Baker Motorsports. That in turn led to the 1996 championship and Raines' first major NASCAR ride.
