Attaching Armstrong track to concrete

I am using Armstrong T molding to transition between two laminates at a doorway. It has a metal track that attaches to the floor and the T molding snaps into the track. I used this upstairs, but I could screw the track to the subfloor. The now project is on concrete. Do I just use adhesive like Liquid nails to attach the track to the concrete? If not, how do you attach it?

Not knowing exactly what the track looks like.... I'd think you'd use plastic or small lead anchors and screws into the concrete.

A 1/4" anchor would work good.

I've never used it but they do make tack strip adhesive. Example:
