That tire is no good. The sticker is gone.

Its about having the right thickness of remaining rubber over the belt. If the rubber is all gone but a thin layer, the rubber cannot do its job of conforming to the road surface thus sticking to the road.

A worn race slick is going to handle terribly.

The only reason street tires have patterns in the tread is so they can handle materials other than just the road surface such as rain, mud and snow. A smooth rubber surface is the best traction you can get on clean pavement. Once you introduce other materials, the tire has to be able to get rid of them or have space for those materials to go. Otherwise, you are hydroplaning on liquids or sliding on solids.
Tires for the track or strip don't have to deal with those issues generally and can run slicks. However, if it rains they break out the rain tires with patterns to channel the water away and allow the tire to make contact with the road.
Yes, as someone mentioned earlier, if the rubber layer on a tire is worn too thin it will not have the flexibility to grip the road as well but, just because the surface of the tire is smooth doesn't mean it has no traction. It's exactly the opposite as long as the road is clean.
