I was confused too, when I first joined this site. So I looked it up.
Dale Earnhardt was a racing car driver who was killed in an racing accident.
"Race" in English, can mean a competition between runners or cars or horses but "race" can also refer to a person's origins for example black or white or Asian people.
A "racist" means someone who doesn't like people who are not from the same race as them for example a white person who doesn't like black people or a black person who doesn't like white people.
But Hoot is playing a game with us and using "racist" to mean someone who likes the sport of racing cars.
It doesn't really mean that so don't use the word "racist" when talking about liking the sport of racing - it isn't a nice thing to say that someone is a racist.
