the track has a lot of traction, any small pin tire will work . I personally prefer impacts on buggy, they arnt so aggressive like grid irons are just makes it easier to drive. In feb it will be in mid 70's and the track wont be watered heavy so i would suggest Super soft in the early mornings and soft when it warms up. Ill have my regular stock of tires for the event but ill most likely only run soft Impacts the whole event. In truggy it will be soft grid irons the whole time.

What I have been told is small pin when it packs down gridiron, impact etc. and prob something like city blocks or comparable the 1st day as the track packs in.

I'm very new to this track, however i can tell you that the dirt is awesome and traction is not a problem here. The facility an its amenties are top notch.

Grid Iron-Soft
or
Hole Shots-M3
Calibers-M3
or
Impact- Soft

My choices....

I'm sure other tires in a soft compound would work just fine.....

For the JC guys out there the Hybrid and DDv2 in soft and super soft are the way to go.

Monty, Douglas hit the NAIL on the head with this one ANY Small Pin Tire in Soft or Super Soft work the BEST. At the Warm-Up Race I ran the SAME set on my Buggy and the SAME set on my Truggy the entire time AKA GridIrons Super Soft. I think I should have ran soft though in my Buggy Main.

This is mostly truggy info.
As the guys said, they can run both quals and main on one set of tires. The wear will increase a little if it gets dry but I run a set of truggy tires for weeks and they seem to get better as they get a little less grabby.

Remember, when Joey lands in AZ it starts raining. Don't try to explain it, just accept it. It even followed him to the warmup race. When the track is over-watered or wet from rain it packs up on tires somethin fierce! Have a set of small pin worn-outs in the box with hardly any tread to accumulate farm dirt and burn clutches.

I am finally going to run round tires this instead of my usual square ones I traditionally use. Maybe I will do better.
