Is or are?

Found online: Is Dwayne Bowe or Greg Jennings better options?

Obviously, it should be "Are" rather than "Is." Again, I'm making a point. The writer should have re-read his writing, and someone should have edited it.

Also found online: Kasey Kahne earned the pole position for Sunday’s Hollywood Casino 400 by posting a new track record...

No, sorry. You can't post an old or current record — been there, done that. All records are new, so it would be "...posting a track record..."
