FloRacing ranks the top 10 dirt drivers who performed best during the month of November.
1) Jonathan Davenport - Since winning his fourth World 100 in September, Davenport has been on fire in the Dirt Late Model world. In November, "Superman" swept the World Finals at Charlotte Motor Speedway and added a $25,000 victory at The Dirt Track at Las Vegas Motor Speedway. He'll now head to the dome with hopes of capturing his first Gateway Dirt Nationals win.
2) Justin Grant - After only capturing one USAC National Midget Series win during the first 10 months of the season, Grant turned it on during the month of November. He kicked things off by winning the Western World Championships opener at Arizona Speedway before scoring the richest win of his career in Hangtown 100 finale at Placerville Speedway. Three days later, he claimed his third win of the month in the opener at Merced Speedway.
3) Chris Madden - A pair of big wins in the Dirt Late Model ranks pushed Madden into a podium spot on this month's rankings. "Smoky" scored the richest win of his career in the inaugural Peach State Classic at Senoia Raceway before capturing his seventh career Blue Gray 100 win at Cherokee Speedway. Madden held off this year's hottest Late Model driver, Brandon Overton, on his way to winning at Cherokee.
4) Buddy Kofoid - November was a month to remember for Kofoid. The 20-year old entered the month locked into a tight battle with Chris Windom in the USAC National Midget Series point standings. A pair of wins in the November Classic at Bakersfield Speedway and Merced Midget Madness at Merced Speedway helped Kofoid pull away from Windom and clinch his first USAC title.
5) Brandon Overton - This year's hottest Late Model driver continued his winning ways in November, picking up his 30th and 31st wins of the season. Overton claimed a $20,000 check in the inaugural King of the Sandbox at Southern Raceway before winning his second straight Gobbler at Cochran Motor Speedway on Thanksgiving weekend.
6) Ryan Godown - While many of his Big-Block Modified competitors in the Northeast were preparing for the winter months, Godown continued winning during the month of November. Godown made the trip south to Louisiana for the Short Track Super Series Cajun Swing, collecting two victories and the overall Cajun Swing championship. In addition to his wins at Boothill Speedway and The Rev, Godown finished on the podium in all five races. Prior to traveling to Louisiana, he also won the High Banks Classic at his home track of Bridgeport Motorsports Park.
7) Logan Seavey - By winning the USAC National Midget Series season finale and USAC National Sprint Car Series finale, Seavey accomplished a feat that had never been done before. Combined with his win in the USAC Silver Crown season finale, Seavey ended the season by winning the finales for all three USAC national touring series divisions. Included in those victories was a win in the prestigious Turkey Night Grand Prix at Ventura Raceway. He was also crowned the overall Hangtown 100 champion after three nights of racing.
8) Brady Bacon - A pair of USAC National Sprint Cars Series victories and his fourth career championship highlighted the month of November for Bacon. He kicked things off with a win during the USAC Oval Nationals at Perris Auto Speedway and then cemented his championship by winning the Western World Championship opener.
9) Bobby Pierce - The "Smooth Operator" only raced once during the month, but he made his one attempt count. Pierce made the trip west to Las Vegas Motor Speedway and hit the jackpot with a $100,000 Duel in the Desert victory. He'll now look to carry that momentum into the Gateway Dirt Nationals, where he'll be chasing his third win in the event.
10) Brett Hearn - Competing in just his 10th race of the 2021 season, the 63-year-old Modified legend returned to victory lane during the World Finals at The Dirt Track at Charlotte Motor Speedway.
