Busch said Friday at Indianapolis that he had a ride for the Indianapolis 500 lined up. But it got squashed. “I had it done last year – sold and everything ready to go – and I’ve got a boss that said no,” Busch said before making references to team owner Joe Gibbs and his wife Samantha. “Figure it out.
Hendrick Motorsports’ 2016 was an eventful one. Chase Elliott took over at the start of the season for Jeff Gordon. Dale Earnhardt Jr. missed the second half of the season after suffering a concussion. Gordon came back to substitute for Junior. And Jimmie Johnson won his seventh championship. Crazily enough, there was a film crew capturing much of went on at Hendrick Motorsports behind the scenes. “You can’t plan this type of stuff,” “Road to Race Day” director Cynthia Hill told Yahoo Sports.
Hugh Freeze’s wild tenure at Ole Miss, full of ups and downs, tumultuously came to an end Thursday night when it was revealed he used a university phone, at least once, to call an escort service. The school announced Freeze’s resignation just minutes before Yahoo Sports and USA Today reported the existence of the call. How the call was located in Freeze’s phone records is a wild story in its own right.
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".
