The only real critical thing to bear in mind if you try and use a road frame is the bottom bracket height of the frame in relation to how steep the banking of the track is. For example both the main 250metre wooden indoor tracks in the UK - Manchester and Newport, need a minimum BB height of 10.5 inches to avoid grounding your pedals/cranks. I suspect that most outdoor tracks would be ok with a road frame + 165mm cranks - but check anyway.

My other advice is just go for it, riding track can be a real buzz, especialy an outdoor one on a still summer evening. Fantastic!
