CONCORD, N. Malik Hooker Youth Jersey .C. -- Danica Patrick emerged unscathed from a caution-filled Bank of America 500 Sunday at Charlotte Motor Speedway to record an 11th-place finish -- her best this season.I was really hoping wed end up getting a top 10, but [Jamie] McMurray got us on the last lap, so we ended up 11th, Patrick said shortly after the 334-lap races conclusion. Well take it and try to keep building over the last few races to put ourselves in a better position for next season.Patricks best finish this year prior to Sunday was 13th at Dover in May. She now possesses four top-15 finishes this season. She has produced at least one top-10 finish every year since joining the Sprint Cup Series full time in 2013 and still stands a good chance of hitting that mark this season. Of the six tracks remaining on this years schedule, she has recorded top-10 finishes at two of them: Kansas and Martinsville, Virginia.Patrick qualified 13th for the Charlotte race that was postponed from Saturday night to Sunday afternoon due to heavy rain from Hurricane Matthew. She ran in the top 20 for most of the event, which had eight caution flags for 51 laps and a 10-minute, 48-second red flag for a 12-car wreck. No one was injured in the multi-car incident.The 34-year-old Patrick noted her Chevrolet was loose for most of the race, but her team, headed by crew chief Billy Scott, made adjustments in the early going to get us in solid position for the second half.With 18 laps remaining, Patrick was eighth. Thirteen laps later she was 10th, one position behind teammate Tony Stewart. She maintained the top-10 spot until the final lap, when McMurray passed her on the 1.5-mile track. Six-time NASCAR champion Jimmie Johnson won the event, breaking a 24-race winless streak.We had a mistake on pit road late in the race and lost some ground when I overshot the pit stall, but the guys quickly recovered and we ended up only losing a couple of spots, Patrick said. The car got a little tight, but they took some wedge back out and it was pretty good there at the end.Patricks pit stall was immediately in front of teammate Kurt Buschs and since both remained on the lead lap for most of the event, it could have contributed to her pit road miscue.She was on the lead lap and kept coming around us and it boxed us in, said Busch, who finished eighth. We dont need that, but we werent the ones penalized. They were the ones penalized on their pit position.Patrick and her Stewart-Haas Racing team now head to Kansas for the Oct. 16 Hollywood Casino 400. Zach Banner Jersey . MORITZ, Switzerland -- Fog prevented downhill racers from getting their Olympic dress rehearsal. Malik Hooker Jersey . -- Los Angeles Lakers guard Jordan Farmar will be out for roughly four weeks after tearing his left hamstring. http:///...n-Mack-Elite-Jersey/ . The 18th player to shoot 60 on the tour, Jamieson settled for par on the final hole when his 15-foot birdie chip grazed the edge of the hole and stayed out. After opening with rounds of 66 and 73 to make the cut by a stroke, he had 11 birdies in the bogey-free round. Auburn, Ala. - Kullen Hlawek knew the best way to get her fellow Auburn student-athletes to become invested in a food drive: make it a competition.We had donations from every single sport, said Hlawek, a gymnast who serves as president of Auburns Student-Athlete Advisory Committee. If theres one thing we can do, we can compete. It got pretty heated. Pretty intense. The buy-in from all of the sports was fantastic.Motivated by a desire to help fellow students in need, and to earn bragging rights among their peers, Auburn student-athletes purchased and donated three truckloads of food during a two-week span in the fall semester.We were just really happy to be able to help them, Hlawek said. To be able to help was a really great opportunity for us.Once student-athletes learned that some of their fellow students struggle with food insecurity, Hlawek says they were eager to assist. We have athletes coming to SAAC now asking, Can we do more?SAAC president Kullen Hlawek speaks to student-athletes at the Tiger Tailgate in August. People have really jumped all in on both the food pantry and any other community service that we can do to help those who arent as fortunate as we are, she said.The competition awarded points based on preferences from the students who use the food pantry: 5 points for rice and pasta, 3 for peanut butter, 1 for a 12-pack of ramen noodles.Mens swimming and diving won the event, earning nearly twice as many points as the second-pllace team. Quincy Wilson Womens Jersey. They really jumped on board and brought in almost a truckload of food, Hlawek said.Auburn gymnast Kullen Hlawek, an aerospace engineering major, serves as SAAC president. Located in the Student Center, the food pantry began serving students four years ago. Between 70-80 students have received food there this semester, an average of six to 10 students per week.Katherine Hettinger, who runs the student food pantry, says Hlawek and the SAAC members were enthused and effective.We were blown away by the amount of food they raised for us, Hettinger said. It wasnt like they put bins outside one of their athletic events and said, Hey, everybody who comes to the game, donate food. They did this just amongst themselves.Auburn student-athletes donated enough food to supply the pantry, which provides food for Auburn University students who identify as food insecure, well into the spring semester, says Hettinger.It just speaks to their level of service, philanthropy and just giving back, Hettinger said. They made it a priority. It was really amazing.I see every day how that impacts our students who are food insecure. It really makes a difference for students who dont know where their next meal is coming from. To have that level of support, that other people at Auburn want them to be successful, is awesome.
