PVC junction box for lighting

I am hanging new recessed lights in the kitchen that connect to a junction box. I have this junction box but would like to attach it to an existing board that runs across just above the ceiling. Can I drill holes in the back of the box to attach with screws?

Not the easiest box to work with but you can drill holes and mount it thru the back.

The recessed already have the junction box built in. Are you extending a cable?

The junction needs to remain permanently accessible .
