How do I add track lighting away from the junction box?

We bought a condo with a horrible drop ceiling in the kitchen that obscured a skylight. Ripping it out revealed two awful flourescent lights.

We were hoping to install two lines of track lighting on either side of the skylight above the counters. After removing the fluorescents we're now left with some stray wires sticking out of the ceiling. Adding a junction box should be easy enough, but we haven't been able to solve the problem of getting the wires to the new track lights.

Is there a good way to do this without adding two other junction boxes?

Unfortunately, no.

And the standard track lighting is something we already have (a gift), so we're limited by that as well.

I first thought about just running both lights off of the same wires, but they would only be functional individually if you had a seperate junction box for each one.
