Racing CM is known as "La Escuelita" (The Little School) due to the high standard of players that have emerged from their teams. Racing is one of Uruguay's traditional teams, in terms of victories and fans. However, in the last few years, Racing has faced economic problems and struggled to remain consistent and perform well at the Uruguayan League.[which?]

Racing's main rival is Fénix, with whom they contest the Clásico del Oeste.
