FAIRMONT - Hobby stock racer Jeff Senne of Welcome and stock car driver Jim Larson of Rushmore each posted double-victories during Friday's loop action at Fairmont Raceway in Fairmont.

Senne, who holds the No. 3 spot in the seasonal point standings, crossed the finish line before points leader Devin Smith during the class' main event. Senne also beat Northrop's Britten Swanson to the checkered flag during the first heat race.

Smith, who holds a 33-point edge over Guy Kimpton, won the second heat race. Kimpton placed sixth in the feature race.

In the stock cars division, Jim Larson captured top honors in the main event by steering his car past Dustin Larson of Worthington. Ironically, both Larsons netted wins in the heat races, with Jim pocketing first place in the initial race, while Dustin claimed the top spot in Heat 2.

Fairmont's Dan Thate, who trails Sathoff by 21 points in the standings, claimed sixth place in the feature.

In modified racing action, points leader Mark Gartner of Mapleton placed ninth in the feature as the trio of Josh Meyer (Fairmont), Tim Pessek (Hutchinson) and Josh Ruby (Lakota, Iowa) narrowed the gap to just one point.

Meyer, who won the opening heat, placed fifth in the main event; Pessek pocketed seventh in the feature; while Ruby notched a 17th-place showing.

James Slawson won the modifieds' feature race, while Fairmont's Oliver Kollofski and Lakefield's Dwaine Hanson claimed the second and third heat races, respectively.
