I both agree and disagree with Dino. I'd use nothing less than 3/4" ply.

My uncle built his kitchen in the '70's from 3/4" hard maple ply and they're holding up fine. They were stained and...

I have a 72" on my 48" PBB. A 64" would probably work but... for the convenience of resting the saw on the track at either end of the table , I like 72".

I bought connectors for my 72" and 54" guide rails, 10.5' combined, to rip some long but crooked boards that the UEG wasn't designed to handle.

Just my two cents...

Pocket screws should be okay.
If you plan to never remove it, glue it, too.

For mine, I made a torsion box from plywood, topped it with melamine, and used EZ double tracks...
