    What do you guys use to remove the marbles after a race? Surform? anything else? Thanks!

    Are you talking from the race track?

    Currently, i just weave around on my warm-up lap.  But, I’m not trying to win every race, just have fun on a budget.

    When I ran oval races as a kid and wanted clean tires for the start of every session, we would use a heat gun with a scraper similar to this:

    Or do you mean the rubber marking/chunks from off of the bodywork?
