It was 1992 at the Hooters 500 in Atlanta where the face of NASCAR had a major change. It was Richard Petty’s final Cup race after a lengthy career, and it also marked the start of the Jeff Gordon era. Perhaps one day racing fans will look back at Sunday’s NASCAR race at Homestead-Miami Speedway with the same feeling. After all, Martin Truex Jr. not only won the race but his first driving championship on the day Dale Earnhardt Jr. ended his 15-year Cup career.
Auto Club Speedway will join several other tracks across the nation that will welcome “Magic of Lights” for the Christmas season. The 1.5-mile drive-through, in the area that serves as the Fan Zone during race weekends, will feature more than 400 LED displays and digital animations. It will be open to the public starting today at 5:30 p.m and will remain up through the end of the year.
Random thoughts for a Tuesday morning, wondering whatever happened to Dave Jackson, the last San Bernardino County two-time CIF Southern Section cross country champion in 1996-97 (Division III) from Rim of the World High School. Competitive drag racing was nurtured in Southern California following the end of World War II.
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".
