Default Pick up on tires

Went to the track, end of the weekend, take my Pilot Sport Cups off, they've got a whole bunch of marbles glued on. I figure I'll scrub them off first session of the next track event. But something inside keeps thinking, "is it bad to leave it on?"
Opinions?

Nah, that’s just extra rubber that’s extending your tire life

You scrape 'em off, make them into a 1/4" thick, 10" Wide x 42" long strip and you can vulcanize them into retreads and save some money.

I end up collecting alot of rocks on the tires after a session as I pull back into the paddock. Once the tires heat they'll be left on the track during your warm up lap.

If you come home with marbles you can use a heat gun and putty knife to clean up. At track they’ll come off when tires heat up. The only time you have to remove if it you need to balance your tires.
