It didn't take long for teenager Hailie Deegan to win over Bill McAnally. As a result, the 16-year-old Deegan, the only female in the 2017 NASCAR Next Class, will transition into full-time NASCAR competition this year with Bill McAnally Racing, the defending K&N Pro Series West championship team. A champion in the Lucas Oil Off Road Racing Series and the daughter of freestyle motocross superstar Brian Deegan, Hailie was one of a dozen drivers to audition for the BMR ride.
Brittany Force planned to become a school teacher, but she left the classroom at the starting line when her father "tricked" her into taking an NHRA Top Fuel dragster for a run after she received her undergraduate degree. Such was the humble beginning for the 2017 NHRA Top Fuel champion, who came from a family known internationally for its accomplishments in NHRA Funny Car competition.
Funny Car driver Alexis DeJoria's retirement decision surprised many in the NHRA community. It even irritated and upset some, but it wasn't one hastily made by the first woman to break the four-second barrier in a Funny Car. DeJoria, who celebrated her 40th birthday this year, began considering retirement last season, before she suffered a fractured pelvic bone and a severe concussion in separate accidents.
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".
