Any rim/hub recommendations? Would this suffice for my first foray into tubulars?

I ride at Bloomer in Rochester MI (200m wood outdoor track), am 37 years old, 2nd year riding/racing at the track, we do mostly scratch / points /miss-n-out, and I hope to learn the Madison this year (practiced a few exchanges last year). I ride a stock Trek T1 with the addition of a 15t cog.
