"Did Not Race"

DNR, often called a scratch, in track, refers to instances where an individual withdraws from the race before it begins. Not the same as DQ (or disqualification), in which a runner is removed after the start. Occasionally, in hand-timed races where there are less timers than runners, DNR will be used to indicate that a runner did not finish fast enough to have his/her time recorded.
He must scratched out before the start. It says DNR.

Do Not Rehire
DNR is often used in places of business where once someone is fired, they are added to this list so in the future they are not rehired.
