Road & Track (R&T) is an American automotive enthusiast magazine. It is owned by Hearst Magazines and is published monthly. The editorial offices are located in Ann Arbor, Michigan.

Road & Track (often abbreviated R&T) was founded by two friends, Wilfred H. Brehaut, Jr. and Joseph S. Fennessy, in 1947, in Hempstead, New York. Published only six times from 1947 to 1949, it struggled in its early years. By 1952, regular contributor and editor John Bond had become the owner of the magazine, which then grew until its sale to CBS Publications in 1972. In 1988, Hachette Filipacchi Media took ownership of the magazine. In October 2008, Matt DeLorenzo became Editor-in-Chief, succeeding Thos L. Bryant, who had been in place for 20 years. Hearst Magazines purchased the magazine in 2011. In June 2012, Larry Webster assumed the role of Editor-in-Chief, and DeLorenzo became an adviser to the publication. Additionally, in 2012 the magazine moved its operations from Newport Beach, California to Ann Arbor, Michigan.

Road & Track's editorial quality had been criticized before Webster's arrival; he brought in new writers and overhauled the magazine's design. During February 2016 Webster resigned as Editor in Chief and Kim Wolfkill was announced as his replacement.

Car and Driver and Road & Track are sister publications at Hearst and have for many years shared the same advertising, sales, marketing, and circulation departments. However, their editorial operations are distinct and they have separate publishers.
