With so few components on a track bike, your toolkit can be pretty lean.  Go to Home Depot and get yourself some 15mm box wrenches for the wheels; they are cheap and you can never have too many.  You’ll need chain whips, some allen wrenches, perhaps a spoke wrench, and – well, that’s about it.  There’s not much to adjust.

One note on chain whips is that most chain whips these days are designed for pretty narrow cog teeth – and they won’t work at all with 1/8” cogs.  They’ll just slide right off.  Either get a track-specific chain whip, or you can make your own by taking the chain off a stock chain whip and installing a length of 1/8” chain to replace it.
