Tires are way too soft for the track conditions.
This is a good example of "feathering."

A harder compound would work better. You should see some wear (looks like graining) when a tire is working, but it should not be feathering back like pictured.

10-4 thank you. I’ll put a harder compound on for the next race and see what I got. Thanks again!
