Using DAX to filter

Ok so I feel like I am missing something. I have a table that I use to get 3 or four other tables on the same axis in visuals (column charts, etc.). The table only has 2 columns and looks like this:


Depending on what "track" a person is on, we calculate stats for a different number of weeks. For instance, if a person is on track 1, they will have 9 weeks that we need to track. If a person is on track 2, they will have 8 weeks we need to track. If a person is on track 3, they will have 5 weeks we need to track. I have what I call a Program table that defines what the program is and how many weeks that program needs to be tracked for:


and then the program code is placed in a column for the particular individual in a different table that has information on the individual. My question is. How can I get a column chart to show only the number of weeks that the person is being tracked for? For instance, how can I get it to where, if the person is on Track 2, it will only show 8 in the axis?  I have tried to use a couple of different DAX formula measures, but nothing has really panned out. Any ideas?
