A rear road hub is designed to accept a cassette on a freehub and has a hollow axle. Older road hubs used screw-on freewheels. Track hubs are designed to accept a screw on fixed cog and a lockring, and have a solid axle. You need a track hub for use on the track. If you actually have a track hub spaced at 126mm, then its a simple matter to remove 3mm worth of spacers on each side to change it to 120mm spacing. You cannot use a road hub on the track. You can, however, use a road front hub with a hollow axle on the track if you replace the quick release with a bolt-on skewer.
