What are some of the preferred ways to "permanently" attach Carrera Go track to plywood or MDF?  It doesn't have countersunk holes the way some track has.

 

The only method that comes to mind for me is wood screws installed right next to the side of the track with washers large enough to overlap the edge.

Try laying a bead of construction adhesive or silicone-based glue next to the outside edge of the track. You might have a reasonable shot at removing and repositioning track in the future if you want to.

Head over to "Slot car illustrated" for a lot more information on plastic tracks and building them.  That site is more dedicated to 1/32 and plastic tracks then slotblog!
