The first table represents Day 1, the second Day 2.
If I were to import this data in PowerBI in a clustered column chart, I first need to find a relationship between the two tables.
I tried relating by Category, however when I click on say the blue bar for Racer 1, it selects both orange and blue but for that Name only (racer 1) and not the just the blue bar.
How should the relationships be done?

I was able to create the column in both tables.
When I try to merge them: Data->Edit Queries->Edit Queries->Merge Queries->Merge as New->Full Outer Join
It doesn't show the second table and the entry that is created appears as blank.
Do I merge or append?

you have to use the 'Append' option which corresponds to the SQL UNION ALL operator.
The 'Merge' option is the equivalent of the different types of JOIN which is not what you want to do in this case.

Proud to be a Datanaut!
within your query, you just need to append both tables together and add an additional column categorizing each table as 'Day 1' for the first table, 'Day 2' for the second table
