What is the definition of “Racing” engine?

I was at the shop today that is rebuilding my engine. The guy that is doing the heads ask me if this was a "racing" engine. I just kind of chuckled and I said "no".
but... I kind of mean yes! I guess that all depends on your definition of "racing".
I mean I plan on taking it to the track a few times a year, if that makes it a "racing" engine?
It's not alcohol injected or anything, but? Now I kind do wonder if he's just going to do everything stock? He knows I'm getting a stoker crank.

What you you guys think he meant? Maybe that was just his way of telling me it's not a racing engine, so don't expect one? I don't know??
