Answer: 
Dewalt and Festool do, but not Makita. I bought a second 55" Makita rail and the Dewalt track connector bar. It works perfectly with the Makita track.
This is a much better option. An 8' track is hard to store, carry to a remote location, and subject to getting bent or twisted. With 2-55" tracks you are much better off in each of these areas, and for a lot less money..

Answer: 
I do not think Makita makes an 8' rail, Dewalt and Festool do, and they are quite expensive.
I bought a second Makita 55" rail and the Dewalt connector bar. I have the best of both worlds. Less money, much more portable and storable, and less prone to damage from bending or twisting. The two rails, connected, work flawlessly. Home Depot does not carry the rail to my knowledge. I went online to Tools

Customer Reviews

Rated 4.3 out of 5 by 11 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Saw but no accessories. I love this saw. It cuts a perfect line with no tear out or rough areas. Nice case for the saw but no case for the guide rail and it's fragile. My only complaint is that it did not come with the clamps or rip fence. You have to order them as accessories. I also ordered the 110-inch guide rail to cut 4X8 sheets of plywood. I may also get the dust bag. Makita never includes the accessories on any of their power tools, and they're pricey, so plan on some extra cost. The customer service and price from Home Depot was excellent. June 12, 2012
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Very good product. Tried using right out of the box. It is easy to setup. I like the ease of adjustments. A lot better than carrying a portable table saw around. Now I can do home projects without having to setup other tools. May 7, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Makita plunge/rail saw: great Great tool. Good quality, well built, much cheaper than others. Came with 55 in track saw and carrying case. On the down side, dust bag and hose adapter for shop vac not included: should be part of the kit. But all in all, great buy! May 15, 2012
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Cuts good but bottom plate is not flat When I tighten the two bevel knobs the bottom plate bends and the saw rocks on the track. Cuts ok but it seems like a design flaw with the bevel adjustment. I am not sure if this will cause problems latter. June 5, 2012
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Am going to return this saw Just starting using the saw and every time I use it the wood burns and smells up the garage. I talked to Makita and they said that shouldn't, happen and I should return it to Home Depot which I will do. February 5, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Easy to Use easy to like! The guide and saw work as expected and insure accurate cuts every time. The service and price from Home Depot were excellent. January 22, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Easy to use and straight, clean edges A little expensive but works great. If your careful, you don't need to clamp it down. Ripping 4 x 8 sheets was always a task I didn't look forward to but not any more. May 22, 2012
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Very good saw works great with plenty of power and precision. Price is better than competition August 14, 2012
