Welcome to the forums.

So you are basically using a starter end at both ends of the track. It's correct on the starting end but backwards on the trailing end.

Normally the tracks are just pushed end to end and you don't have that problem.
I'm going to check into what you need as I don't remember ever seeing that type of end.

Usually you'd wire thru the ceiling to each track. Then you could use a starter end on each track or the fitting posted below. This would be easy if the track was running parallel to the ceiling joists.

Unfortunately from what I was reading is that code only allows the track to be fed and not a feed to be taken from the track. That would mean there is no trailing or dead end fitting made.
