Tire question?

Can I make a track day on this rear tire? Sept 7th.
It is a pilot power with about 5k miles and 2 noob track days on it. I know the corners of the tire are fine, as well as the front tire (pilot power w/ 3k miles). I just don't want to be turned away at the bike check in the morning because the middle grooves are almost to "that point." The penny check looked good at the front of the middle grooves, but they seem to flatten out as they go further back, so the penny check looks iffy.
Just please let me ride Tim, I know I can squeeze one more td out of this tire.

See the little piece of rubber inside the groove that looks like it doesn't belong there? That is the wear indicator. You should be fine on just about any track other than MSR-C.

Like Dirk said, you arent quite to your wear bar yet, so you should be fine. I have a take off I'll bring for you, for free, just in case!

See you Sunday Mike

only comment i have is that the turn in will be odd.... It will feel MUCH better if you didnt have a big flat spot. I did a trackday on a set like you have now, and I hated the feeling....
