Search Tips

Quotation Marks—Enclosing a multiword phrase in quotation marks tells the search engine to list only sites that contain those words in that exact order.

The following must appear in ALL CAPS and with a space on each side.

AND—Indicates that the records found must contain all the words joined by the AND operator. For example, to find objects that contain the words wizard, oz, and movie, enter wizard AND oz AND movie.

OR—Records found must contain at least one of the words joined by OR. For example, to find objects that contain the word dog or the word puppy, enter dog OR puppy.

AND NOT—Indicates that the records found cannot contain the word that follows the term AND NOT. For example, to find objects that contain the word pets but not the word dogs, enter pets AND NOT dogs.

NASCAR Playing Card Deck

playing card

Each car racing in a NASCAR-sanctioned race competes with the backing of a well-heeled sponsor. Corporations that hope to make customers of NASCAR fans spend millions supporting the drivers, pit crew, cars, transport, and other expenses of their "team." In return, corporations that spend the most to sponsor a team select the color-schemes of the team cars and place the company logo prominently on the car hood. Associate sponsors place smaller corporate logos on the sides of race cars or on quarter-panels. Smaller logos can cost as much as $1.5 million for a racing season. Major sponsors, of course, pay millions more. Much of the expense of sponsoring a race car on a NASCAR circuit covers fuel costs-not just the fuel costs on race day, but fuel to tests cars and to transport them and their pit crews, drivers, and back-up drivers from track to track.
