I like goof off as I use it for other cleanup work, but I'm sure others will chime in.

Mothers "R3" is made just for removing tar and rubber marks and it "WORKS"
You also might try "NOT HITTING PYLONS" that works wonders also.

Turtle Wax label and sticker remover takes cone marks right off without any effort, way better than anything else I've tried. I also have a set of plastic razor blades to help with really built up marks.

R3 race rubber remover didn't work at all for me. Goof off didn't work as well either.
