A reason to go nascar race then

The car has 18 inch wheels and I am not sure if the tires were replaced. The car has 27k on it and if not replaced it has about half the tires life left. Probably will reach 45k - I will be happy though it might have performance issue towards the 2-3/32nd tread. I had another mechanic check but he only used his bare fingers and told that I had about half tires tread left.
