Tips For Searching the Track Rosters

To search the database, simply type the term(s) or phrase into the text box, select the search option (equals, begins with, contains or not equal) and press the "Find" button.

Search on multiple fields -- enter search terms in the text boxes for two or more fields, select the search option and press the "Find" button. (all multiple field searches are "AND" searches. It is not currently possible to do "OR" searches.)

Year and Date Range searches are numeric searches, only number values will return proper results.

Searches look for exact matches. If you do not get expected results, or are not sure of spelling, try using the "begins with" of "contains" search options.

Searching by Date
