Six women have a shot at NHRA titles entering this weekend's Countdown to the Championship at zMAX Dragway in Charlotte, North Carolina. For a few of them, life could get a bit awkward on the home front. Top Fuel driver Leah Pritchett has to contend against her husband, Gary Pritchett, who is a crew member for Steve Torrence, the opposition. Courtney Force faces off against her father, 16-time champion John Force, in Funny Car.
Brehanna Daniels could sense people staring at her as she walked through Dover International Speedway's pit area carrying her equipment bag. She had trained for this moment for nine months, and now it was time to make history. The Virginia native would make history as the first African-American woman to pit a vehicle in a national NASCAR series race. Earlier this year in ARCA, she became the first African-American female to go over the wall in a national racing series.
CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- At 15, Hailie Deegan handles the media with maturity beyond her years, easily and confidently transitioning from print to radio to TV interviews at the NASCAR Next Class luncheon in Charlotte. She spends about 15 minutes at one media table and then moves to another, following NASCAR's directions. She isn't intimidated by anything or anyone. That's to be expected of the girl whose father is Brian Deegan, the most decorated freestyle motocross rider in the competition's history.
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 Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
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, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
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".
