Marbles on the front tire

Hey - I had a bunch of heat in the front tire and managed to pick up marbles on the front tire during the last run at TWS (Texas World Speedway) yesterday. Happened while passing a bunch of folks during a video run with Allan.

Will that clean up next time out or should I throw that tire away?

It will come off after your first or second turn.

"Hot tire pickup" at TWS (Texas World Speedway) is pretty normal while traveling down hot pit and in to the paddock. No biggie.

The more heat...the better. I usually knock it off as I am putting my warmers on.
