It has to do with the release agent used to get tires out of their molds. It needs to get worn off for the tire to perform properly.

Don't think those new tires they use in Nascar aren't properly scuffed.

What's a NASCAR?

Is it an electric hybrid or something?

Not a fan either but just used it as an example where extreme traction is a must.
