High HP cars ,1000+ , will usually start loosing reaction time and 60' consistency between 60 -70 runs . Depending on how hard the car launches .
I give my tires to a Super Street racer who gets another 50 to 60 ,or until I give him the next set.
Like Gary said ,track prep at Div/Nat races is good for a soft leaving radial car ,but I wouldn't trust it to be there for 6-7 rounds of Super Gas .
