This wil really help you determine what to use. The reason i say this is that they change the course for each race and the conditions cahnge a long with the course enough to warrent using different tires. When i race the Am Cups ifound that tires like the explorer pro 2.1 and the hutch python 2.0 worked. But i lost some traction with te python mainly becasue i made most of my time on the descents and tech flat bits..

I don't have time to pre-ride the course and then change tyres.....I'll be lucky if I get time to pre-ride at all.

From my experience (hardpack and sand), I prefer the Kenda Karma to the Python Light on the Rear....not really sure about the front though and the general terrain in Big Bear.
