The track and tires are both sprayed with a special solvent compound.
Spinning tires at the starting line actually slow the vehicle down; while the tires are spinning the vehicle isn't going anywhere. The idea of a race is to be the quickest one to the end of the track.
Depends on the track mainly but cutting proper grooves in your tires is a good start
I asked that question when I went to my local tire dealer and he showed me the Geo Track tires (made in China). He said that the parent company is Bridgestone.
Tires are changed during an auto race because the tires get worn down by the track. It is safer to have good tires than to have tires that are worn down that could blow apart and cause accidents.
Drag cars have large rear tires with no tread to grab more traction on the track surface. The rear tires also have lower air pressure so when the energy is transferred to the rear tires (as torque) the tires ripple and even more of the tire touches the track for more traction.
A laugh track signals to the audience that something is supposed to be funny.
Soft tires are better because they are smooth on the track which gives them more speed.
Hankook are excellent tires. Next time you go to a car race track, or drag strip, look around and see how many tires are Hankook.
You can find out some information on http://www.tirerack.com/tires/types/comp.jsp Tirerack is such a good resources, I used it last year when I was looking for tires.
usually, racing slicks made by Goodyear or Firestone, if its a wet track rain tires.
Any tire really.
President Clinton's jogging track was constructed with 30,000 recycled car tires and polyurethane binder. The track simulated jogging on grass.
They are made in China, can't track down a factory or manufacturer name. I would stick with tires with a known reputation.
this is a good question. it all depends on the type of cars are running on the track. in formula 1 racing, if it starts to rain the cars will go into the pits and either put on intermediate tires or wet tires, depending on the dampness of the track. in NASCAR racing, they will pull the cars into the pits and they will take trucks with jet engines attached in the bed and have them blow the track dry. if it is a public track, they dont do anything
there is a traction computer for the steering system. tires
Spinning tires heats up the rubber, making it more tacky and better able to grip the track.

by lowering the pressure in the tires but it depends on what kind of soil the track is in, for example for wet conditions you need more traction as you need to lower the pressure in the tires so you get more drive. Buy a pressure Gauge.
