Track day tires

Question for those of you who are more experienced track riders. I did a track day at the end of the year last year on a new set of tires. The bike then sat over winter. I have a track day coming up in the next couple of weeks and am wondering if I can use those same tires? Do they loose grip after experiencing below 0 degree F? Do they lose grip after a certain period of time?

Yes and Yes.
Depending on your speed and experience, you might be ok, but I think you should rather use new tyres.
Do the "thumb nail" impression on the tyres (Google it).
Tyres don't like extreme cold, ask any tyre manufacturer.

At the end of the day it's your life and your bike, nobody on the Internet can give you the right answer, your best tool is to educate yourself buddy.

Thanks Donsy, I am leaning towards some new Q3's for the track day. I figure it's cheap insurance!

Swill, if those tires are DOT tires there should be no issue whatsoever. DOT compounds are designed for many heat cycles and heat cycles are what really kill compounds.

Track specific tires/race day tires will degrade more rapidly.

From my experience doing track day s on DOT tires after the winter, I have had no issues.
You would also have to figure in how hard you push it at the track.
