Add a long stretcher across the bottom centered between the short stretchers, use mortise and tenon. If it racks now it will only get worse over time and pretty soon fail altogether. I agree that the apron is not wide enough for that length of table. Why did you make the short aprons wider than the long ones? Four inches on the apron would be a minimum for this length of table.
