During Dale Earnhardt Jr.’s final season where positive results have largely been absent, Earnhardt’s crew chief, Greg Ives, has been the frequent target of condemnation on social media from fans of NASCAR’s most popular driver. Most recently, Ives received quite a bit of criticism Sunday for his strategy calls during the Brickyard 400 at Indianapolis Motor Speedway.
One of NASCAR’s marquee races, the Brickyard 400, is a win every driver covets and can point to as a significant accomplishment. Meaning that wasn’t lost on Kasey Kahne, the winner Sunday at Indianapolis Motor Speedway, who holds great reverence for the venerable facility. As a young man the Enumclaw, Wash., native moved to the Indianapolis area for three years to further his career, dreaming of one day winning at the track that is among the most iconic in all of racing.
Brad Keselowski and Team Penske have agreed on a multi-year contract extension that will see the 2012 Cup Series champion continue to drive the No. 2 Penske Ford “well into the future.”Keselowski joined Penske in 2009 and three years later delivered team owner Roger Penske his first NASCAR premier division championship. The 33-year-old has won all but one of his 23 Cup Series wins driving a Penske-owned car. Keselowski’s contract was set to expire at the end of the 2017 season.
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".
