History & Present Day
Founded by Wilfred H. Brehaut, Jr. and Joseph S. Fennessy, in 1947. At the time, the small-time magazine, created in New Hampshire, struggled to publish its first six issues. That was until soon-to-be writer and editor John Bond became the owner of the magazine. Under his management, the magazine experienced growth and found its niche in the magazine market. It was later sold to CBS Publications in 1972. Soon thereafter, in 2011, Hearst Magazines purchased Road & Track and moved its operations from Newport Beach to the Tree Town, Ann Arbor, Michigan.
In the March/April 2019 issue of Road & Track, the magazine announced the closing of the editorial offices in Michigan and relocation to Hearst Tower in New York. Since the relocation, Road & Track has continually issued digital issues surrounding the latest news and reports on new production cars, vintage cars, and race cars with drive reviews, road trips, and comparison tests.
