Question "Reason has a rack for..."

Hello everyone

Since the introduction of the Rack Extentions, Props readily use the "Reason has a rack for..." catchphrase all over the place in pretty much all of their marketing material. As a non-native English speaker, I'm not sure I get this. I mean, I think I know what they meant, but I'm still not sure about this and I never heard or read anyone saying anything like that. http://www.thefreedictionary.com/rack gave me such gems like these:
  • A state of intense anguish
  • A pair of antlers
  • To cause great physical or mental suffering
  • destruction; wreck
  • An instrument of torture on which the victim's body was stretched
  • A wholesale rib cut of lamb or veal between the shoulder and the loin
Really? Ok, maybe my selection is a bit skewed, agreed, but still, nothing among the lines of "to specialize in...", "to be crazy about..." or anything remotely related to what I feel they mean. Anyone care to explain what's the deal here?

Regards,
Zbig
