(Photo by Bruce Badgley, Motorsports Photography)WINNEMUCCA, Nev. – Cory Sample started the season with a chip on his shoulder.He ended it with his first Larry Shaw Race Cars Western Regional crown.Sample, from Winnemucca, Nev., won 26 features – including his Xtreme Motor Sports IMCA Modified career 100th – on the way to the regional title and runner-up finish in national point standings.“We totaled our car last year at the Duel In The Desert and came out with a chip on our shoulder this season. We worked and worked and worked,” said Sample. “Our maintenance program got better, the tracks in northern Nevada worked together more and my schedule at work allowed me to work more weekends. Everything kind of aligned for us.”His 48 starts came at 10 different tracks, seven of them in Nevada, where he earned Allstar Performance State honors to complement Fernley 95A Speedway, Lovelock Speedway and Rattlesnake Raceway titles.Sample scored career win number 100 while putting the final touches on his Evenson Ironman Challenge Series championship at Rattlesnake on July 4.“Our goal at the start of the season was to finish in the top five nationally. To be runner-up is icing on the cake,” Sample said. “It’s tough to travel 10 hours to get another night in, then turn around and drive back home. We won six of 10 Ironman Series races and that put us into contention to race for national points, but we did mainly Saturday night stuff.”He missed one Saturday outing, Southern Oregon Speedway’s Lon Skinner Memorial, after a fire believed to be electrical in origin destroyed the pickup, trailer and race car he had borrowed … his father was headed to Super Nationals with his car … on the interstate 15 minutes out of Winnemucca.Even the low point of his season, however, had a silver lining.“That felt like the worst day of my life. How do you call people and tell them you just burned their stuff to the ground?” asked Sample. “But we got so much support from sponsors and friends who offered their help to keep us going.”After a single outing in his father Rodney’s pro stock, Sample had started racing a Modified in 2006 – the same year fellow Nevadan Dan Fitzgerald was the national runner-up – and soon crossed paths with Wyoming’s Justen Yeager.“We got to know each other following the Wild West Tour. He was the guy who made me think about where I wanted to go with my racing,” Sample explained. “It was nice to end Zane DeVilbiss’ reign as regional champion and it’s neat to be the bookend guy with Justen, who won the region in 2009.”Starts: 48Wins: 26Additional Top Fives: 17HIS CREW: Father Rodney and Eddie Poole.HIS SPONSORS: Razor Chassis of Platte Center, Neb.; Wells Deign of Ogallala, Neb.; Area 41 Motorsports of Lovelock; Dakota Diesel of Battle Mountain; Icon Pistons of Carson City; Keyser Manufacturing of Coopersville, Mich.; and Dynamic Drivelines of Des Moines, Iowa.
Facebook Twitter Google+ EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. — Notre Dame stretched Syracuse’s defense to both ends of the field, punching through the thinned unit and gaining chunks of yardage, practically at will. The Fighting Irish were going to throw screens and slants. It was going to work. There was only so much the Orange could do about it.The Fighting Irish could pull up, screw up and give the ball up without consequence.It was like watching a cocky point guard dribble his defender to the asphalt, only to back off and do it again without scoring anything, just to torment his opponent. But this was football on a professional stage. And it was only the first quarter. That’s not how it’s supposed to work.With its own series of short passes to the perimeter mixed in with the occasional deep ball, Syracuse tried to beat Notre Dame at its own game. In that game, though, the Fighting Irish had the polish of a runway model.Syracuse was more like a tipsy freshman trying to win a wet T-shirt contest on spring break. It was kind of fun to watch — an attractive idea — but it ended poorly. While No. 8 Notre Dame (4-0) could get away with its turnovers, SU lacked the execution the Fighting Irish used to punish Syracuse’s mistakes as the Orange (2-2) fell to a 31-15 loss at MetLife Stadium. In front of 76,802 fans on Saturday night, SU got beat by the kind of team it aspires to be and could be, someday.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textThe Fighting Irish threw screens at Syracuse all game. With good reason, SU couldn’t stop them. Orange quarterback Terrel Hunt threw screens all game long, too.“Yeah, the problem is on the first drive we missed two,” SU quarterbacks coach Tim Lester said.Notre Dame opened the game with four screen passes, two off-tackle runs and a quarterback scramble that took the Fighting Irish from its own 18 to the Syracuse 23-yard line. There, UND quarterback Everett Golson fumbled to Brandon Reddish.Hunt hit back with a 38-yard completion to Brisly Estime down the right sideline, only to suck the momentum out of the drive by overthrowing a pair of screens. He didn’t find SU’s fastest receiving threat downfield for the rest of the game.Despite forcing five turnovers, SU couldn’t count on its defense to keep taking the ball from Notre Dame. The Orange couldn’t catch Golson. He caught the ball out of the shotgun and released it too fast. Hunt caught the ball out of the shotgun and threw it too high, low or behind his receivers.“The defense did a great job, they gave us the ball, the offense fell short a couple times,” Hunt said. “I put that on myself.”Syracuse lost to a more talented team, it’s true. But the Orange’s mistakes and its untimeliness took chances away from whatever talent SU has. On its third drive of the game, in a still-scoreless contest, Syracuse jumped offside on 3rd-and-2 on its own 24. On 3rd-and-7, Ben Lewis cut into the middle third of the field, open, with space to run into, but Hunt threw the ball 3 yards behind him.At the time, Golson was three passes away from starting his streak of 25 straight completions that locked SU out of the game.It’s hard to know if Lewis and Jarrod West could make the same play UND wideout Corey Robinson did, falling away from Reddish tearing at his uniform, to catch a touchdown pass with 9:39 left in the third quarter.Hunt didn’t throw the ball well enough for those watching to find out. Where Golson zipped screens and swing passes, Hunt left SU receivers reaching for passes they couldn’t catch or waiting to clutch the ball just to hold onto it. The Orange’s offensive linemen didn’t do a good enough job of staying onside.“We just did not execute anything that we did today,” SU running back Prince-Tyson Gulley said.The stadium-record crowd for a collegiate game could have been treated to a duel between a pair of quick-hit spread attacks.But there was only one. And it wasn’t the Orange.Jacob Klinger is an assistant sports editor with The Daily Orange, where his column appears occasionally.

“It is not fun to obviously put a position player in that situation,’’ Boone said. “For Ford and some of the guys it is fun, but sitting in my chair, you worry about hurting someone, and sitting there getting kicked in the mouth is no fun. I am sure there is something to that question.’’ There is no mercy rule in MLB, but New York’s Aaron Boone thinks one being implemented might be a good thing.The Yankees manager shared his thoughts on the idea Friday when addressing the 19-5 loss his team suffered at the hands of the Indians on Thursday. “It’s not fun to have to put in a position player”Aaron Boone discusses a mercy rule and how it could prevent injuries/bad situations during blowouts pic.twitter.com/EB6woa1GbN— Yankees Videos (@snyyankees) August 16, 2019“I think there would be a benefit to that,’’ Boone said. “You would probably eliminate a lot of the unwritten rules, people running or swinging. It would be like, if you get to this point after seven innings or whatever, there might be something to that and worth exploring.’’Some of Boone’s frustration stems from the fact he had to use DH Mike Ford on the mound for two innings against Cleveland. He’d rather avoid position players pitching.

What a way to start 2018 for Letterkenny based salon Pello Hairdressing! The exclusive Aveda salon owner Patrick Gray has just returned from an amazing 3 days of working backstage with Aveda on 3 different shows for 3 different designers for London Fashion Week A/W18.PATRICK BACKSTAGE WITH AVEDA AT LFW A/W 2018As we all know LFW is one of the biggest fashion events in the world. Patrick Gray, the owner of Pello Hairdressing, which is the only Aveda salon in Donegal, was thrilled to be representing the Aveda brand for Ireland. Patrick said he “was enormously proud to be chosen as part of a team of 11 international Aveda stylists from around the globe.” He felt privileged to work under the guidance of Bea Watson who was the team leader for The London shows. Bea is also the global educator for Aveda. GLOBAL EDUCATOR AND TEAM LEADER BEA WATSON WITH PATRICK.Also overseeing the team was Jon Reyman, who’s a collaborative stylist for some of the most influential designers in the industry notably Donna Karen, Oscar de la Renta, Nautica and Carolina Herrera.Jon heads up to 20 shows during fashion week each year between London, Paris and New York. JON REYMAN WITH PATRICK GRAY Patrick says “that despite his 39 years experience of working in the industry it was a pretty unique experience”. He added that “with these guys you need to leave your ego at home as it’s such a time pressured environment with 18 models for each show who all need to have hair, nails, and Make-up done within a time frame of 3 hrs. That leaves up to 2 models for each stylist, so the pressure is on as everything needs to run as smoothly as possible. Patrick added “Bea is a true Aveda Artist with a totally calm aura She’s amazing at coordinating a team and remaining cool and collected throughout. ”You realise working backstage for London Fashion week that teamwork is crucial for an event at this level and this is something that I totally instil in my own staff training here at Pello and it’s what makes a busy salon run smoothly.”Team Effort Backstage“It’s was a fantastic feeling to be able to come back to the salon in Letterkenny and share this very magical and unique experience with my team. “Not only that but it gives us here at Pello Hairdressing the opportunity to share with our guest the in-looks that are trending right now straight from the catwalk.”A few of Patrick’s team members had also styled for New York Fashion Week the previous week. However they all agreed that London is the coolest of the fashion weeks.Patrick himself an avid follower of fashion week over the years, always thought that hair for the Paris shows was the most glamorous, with New York being the most wearable and Milan always tending to be more classical.But London always seems to have that edge and creativity that always makes us want to grab our tools and copy that latest look that’s hit the runway.My own personal favourite says Patrick “was a look from the Roberta Einer show inspired by the 80s sensation Sade which was the featured with my own model in the evening standard”. He added “This was a slick low braid with a high shine finish.” Patrick has worked with the global Aveda brand of which the product’s up to 96% naturally derived for over a decade. He opened Pello Hair Color and Design in Letterkenny in 2007 and has recently opened Pello Hairdressing in Letterkenny Shopping Centre in July 2017. As an appreciating of his belief and devotion to the brand coupled with his almost 40 years experience of working in the hair industry he was truly humbled to be invited as part of the team. At the beginning of each show you are briefed by the team leader on the looks that needs to be created for each individual designer. Each designer will have from one to 3 or 4 different styles to complement their unique fashion design. The three designers that Patrick represented as part of the Aveda team were Roberta Einer, Paula Knorr and Merchant Archives.

This was mixed with sleek low ponies and plaits which were varied to suit the individuality of the models sporting the look.Another amazing highlight for the weekend for Patrick was that his team effort model from the show made “The Evening Standard Newspaper”.Patrick’s joint Model (to the right ) made the Evening Standard Newspaper.DAY 2: THE TALENTED GERMAN DESIGNER PAULA KNORR. A/W2018 LFWRED ALERT FOR PAULA KNORRPatrick’s second backstage show was for the German-born designer Paula Knorr which was held at the BFC Show Space, on The Strand.
