Darrell Wallace Jr., a stock-car driver who really does prefer to be called “Bubba,” finished second Sunday in the Daytona 500 -- a development that could have bigger long-term significance for NASCAR than Austin Dillon's chaotic and somewhat controversial victory. Dillon, driving the No. 3 car owned by his grandfather, Richard Childress, and made famous by Dale Earnhardt Sr., knocked aside Aric Almirola’s car and won the race 20 years after Earnhardt won his only Daytona 500.
Labonte, who finished 22nd at Bristol in a Dodge, said he had spent most of the race trying to hold onto his spot until the race was over, so he could return it in one piece to the hauler. There was little side-by-side racing. “I didn’t really feel comfortable doing it,” said Labonte, who is to start 31st in today’s race. “There was less charging. A few cars handled good, but a lot of them didn’t handle good.”He included his car in the latter category.
THE powerful Chevrolet Monte Carlo SS stock car is leaving Nascar’s top series and will be replaced next year in all 36 races by Chevy’s version of the Car of Tomorrow, which will have the Impala SS nameplate splashed across its front bumper. General Motors has dropped the Monte Carlo from its 2008 lineup. Impala drivers could be just as successful as Monte Carlo drivers because they are pretty much the same group (with the exception of Tony Stewart, who will race a Toyota in 2008).
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
