For the first time in 2015, short track racing stars were in action on Friday night at Boardwalk Hall in Atlantic City (NJ).  NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour winners, Supermodified champions and Super Late Model champions were all turning their first laps of the new year.


When it came to the action on the track, Andy Jankowiak was the class of the field and went on to capture the 30-lap TQ Midget feature, locking himself into Saturday’s 40-lap main event. staff photographer Rick Ibsen was on hand to capture all of the action on Friday night and fans can now view a photo gallery from the event on the 51 Five Star Race Car Bodies Facebook Feed.


51 will have live Trackside Now coverage of Saturday’s action beginning at 12 p.m. ET.  The weekend long coverage is presented by John Blewett Inc. Equipment and Contracting.
