If you're lucky you only stripped the lockring, which will cost a few dollars. If you're unlucky, you stripped the hub threads and will need to rebuild the wheel with a new hub. Depending on how you accomplish it, that might run as little as $50 or as much as $100.
Track cogs should be greased and tightened /hard/ with a chain whip. The grease allows you to tighten the cog far enough. Same goes for lockring. After installation, you should skid around and make sure there's no slippage.
