Dale Earnhardt Jr.’s debut as a NBC Sports on-air contributor will see him featured in the network’s coverage of two marquee events -- Super Bowl LII in Minneapolis, and at the XXIII Olympic Winter Games in Pyeongchang, South Korea. Earnhardt announced last year he would retire as a full-time NASCAR driver following the 2017 season and join NBC Sports as an analyst, a role that included him being involved in other sports coverage aired on the network.
Capitalizing on Kyle Larson’s mechanical issues, Christopher Bell won the Chili Bowl Nationals for a second straight year Saturday night at the River Spirit Expo Center at Tulsa’s Expo Square. Larson started on the pole and was leading with 15 laps remaining when the engine in his car expired. That ended the night for the driver who competes fulltime in the NASCAR Cup Series, and was seeking his first win in the prestigious midget race, a race he said wants to win more than the Daytona 500.
Dan Gurney, the first driver to win races in Formula One, IndyCar and NASCAR, died Sunday from complications of pneumonia. He was 86. Gurney began racing in 1955 and in his career won in nearly every division he entered. He won four Formula One races, seven IndyCar races and five NASCAR Cup Series races, and in 1967 he teamed with A.J. Foyt to win the 24 Hours of Le Mans. Mario Andretti and Juan Pablo Montoya are the only other drivers to have scored wins in Formula One, IndyCar and NASCAR.
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".
