track lighting switching sections at turn?

Hello I want to be able to switch sections of line voltage track lighting IE track one is on then I can turn track two and then track three and so on. The track is elco brand. I'm assuming that all I need to do is clip the hot wire for the 90 turn and wire either end to a standard switch? I know that the previous section will have to be powered in order for the next section to turn on this way but is an ok way of doing it?

Install it as separate track lights, each with its own junction box.
