Raceway

I'm running a circuit that must have surface mounted metal raceway for about 15" of the wire run. (I'm using 14/2 NM cable.)
1.) Do I need to run the raceway section wire with the sheathing stripped off?
2.) If so the ground wire will be bare. This seems off. What's the scoop on this?
3.) I'm exiting the raceway through the wall directly to an outside light fixture. How do I do this? Do I use a junction box at the exit?
Thanks in advance

1) No need to strip the sheathing. Just strip it in the box.

3) You will have a box outside and should have change over fitting at the conduit end.

Given that it is a metal raceway, the ground wire needs to be bonded to the raceway.

Yep, that's a given.

Short sections of raceway, that are used only for mechanical protection, are specifically exempted from the raceway grounding rules by the US NEC.

Thanks, The J-box will be grounded, hence the raceway also.
So if I understand Petey, the romex can go inside the raceway--sheathing and all?

Yes it can. Strip it at the box as you normally would.
