Orange Aluminum has  8 ft. Price looks decent, don't know about shipping.

RAH: Shipping is US $46.15. Need to rethink if I can find two smaller pieces and line them up somehow. Thanks for the link.

My guess is that the length, is charged a special pricing charge by the shipping company.

Woodworm!: you got that right. Now that I think about it, I once shipped a 48" straight edge and UPS and USPO considered had a special rate as it was "oversized."

UPS allows up to 108" (9 foot) length and 165" combined girth and length  before it's oversize.  48" oversize must have had some other issue.

McMaster Carr only sells 48" t-track so it seems that's a standard length.  If you can make the slot it goes into straight (which you would have had to do anyway) then multiple pieces should be fine.
