WD40 is known as a cleaner and protectant. Is it ok to spray WD40 on your tires?

I clean my tires with acetone and diesel fuel.

Thanks for the clarification on that.

Next question as it could pertain,

If I have tires that may have been sauced at one point and time, and may have a smell to them, but haven't been sauced while there, would I still be able to used said tires? Thinking along the lines of some of the tires I plan to bring have been sauced for use at my local track, but since the rule is in place for the event, I wouldn't be saucing them there, if that makes sense. Mainly looking to use them on Tuesday for practice to see if the tread and compound are close enough that I can switch to a soft or super soft for the event if my tires are an issue for the event.

Sorry to badger you with the questions, but trying to know up front, if possible, so I know what I may need to do.

Another good "cleaner" I've found is Marvel Mystery Oil and PB Blaster. Clean as a whistle!

Just run them dude. You'll be fine. The whole "no sauce" thing is only something they can control at the track. Unless Joe is the designated "tire smeller" at tech?

So possibly just sauce your tires real nice, let them soak the night before you come and run.

Not sure, I did not volunteer to be tire sniffer but I have no clue as far as if you can run tires that have been sauced before or not, the decision hasn't been made on that, I just know that we are not allowing traction additives to be used at the new facility.
