rear drop outs

hi, no problems, just wanted to expand my bike knowledge. Can anyone tell me what the extra threaded hole on the right side dropout on most frames nowadays is for? It's just above the axle slot.
Thanks for any input.

There should be one on each side for mounting a rack.

It's where you attach the playing card to make that cool vroom-vroom noise.
