Jack Daniels Racing Duo Primed for Clipsal 500

The Jack Daniel's Racing duo of Rick and Todd Kelly are primed for this weekend's Clipsal 500, with off season developments to the team's Nissan Altimas putting the pair in a solid position for the revamped event.

For the first time, the Saturday race will be split into two 125km long segments, ensuring a change of attitude from the drivers, and an all-new perspective for fans trackside.

The weekend marks the first anniversary for Nissan Motorsport's return to the premiere level of Australian motorsport, and with a full season of development under their belts, the Kelly brothers are looking for an improved showing in the concrete canyon.

The event will see the first race meeting appearance of the Altima's new-for 2014 body kit, which provided Todd and Rick with the second and third quickest overall times at the recent official test day at Sydney Motorsport Park.

Practice for the Clipsal 500 commences on the streets of Adelaide at 10:15am on Friday
