BM@N (Baryonic Matter at Nuclotron) is the first experiment at the accelerator complex of NICA-Nuclotron at JINR (Dubna). The aim of the experiment is to study collisions of relativistic ion beams of the kinetic energy from 1 to 4.5 AGeV with fixed targets. The last run started a new physics program of BM@N – Short Range Correlations (SRC) studies in light nuclei. The BM@N setup allows detecting of the residual nucleus for the first time. BM@N tracking detectors play a key role in the identification of the nucleus after hard scattering in inverse kinematics. We present the first results of the BM@N tracking detectors using the data collected in spring 2018.
