Road Rash on the Bumper?

is that the correct term for it? well anyways it looks like greyish powder on my front bumper and my dad called it road rash...

is there anyway to get rid of it without repainting?

If it’s not scratched too deeply (just on the surface & not down to the plastic of the bumper) I would try a rubbing compound.

Probably tar. Try a claybar?
