It is mostly for finding center, often in conditions where traction levels make it hard to 'feel'. Remember that caster and toe on your street car helps the wheel self-center, and those settings may be set up radically different on a racing car (so a race car won't necessarily self-center like a street car). It also helps you identify slip angles. As tires wear, the relationship between steering angle and direction recedes, and the centering stripe helps you see this wear.
