Brian Sears is dominating the Yonkers Raceway driver standings.

If Brian Sears isn't careful, he could make a living at this.

Sears, fresh off a six-pick of wins at Yonkers Raceway (including half a dead-heat) Saturday night, rolled a seven during Monday's 12-race Presidents' Night program.

Driving in each and every race, he picked up right where left off, throwing down the gauntlet in four of the evening's first five forays.

Death-and-taxes, Going Native ($2.20) wired the $9,000 pacing opener (1:55 1/5) before Double it Up ($5.30, pictured above) aired in the $11,000 third-race pace (1:53 4/5). It was Fast and Feisty ($6.30) sticking his nose out at just the right moment in the $12,000 fourth-race pace (1:56 2/5) and K Slater ($6.80) overcoming the eight-hole (1:54 1/5) to win the $15,000 fifth-race pace.

Win No. 5 came behind odds-on Glass Pack ($3.80) in the $17,000 eighth-race pace (1:54) and No. 6 with the freshly-claimed Go West Lucky Cam ($4.80) in the $19,000 10th-race pace (1:53 3/5) before Sears concluded his winner’s circle welcome wagon with prohibitive choice B J's Guy ($3.40) in the $17,000 11th-race pace (1:54 1/5).

Sears began the night leading the local driver standings with 63 wins while getting his picture taken at a nearly 27 percent clip.

For the record, Sears' remaining Monday drives resulted in a second-place finish, a breaker, a sixth, another sixth and getting photoed for the glory in the 12th-race finale.
