To shed some light on the dedication of this year’s Road Tour Ed Capen of Goodguys explained, “We wanted to pay tribute to Jack Trepanier and decided an appropriate way was to dedicate the tour in his memory.” Ed continues, “Jack and Troy had such a blast on last year’s inaugural Road Tour. Jack praised it as one of the best he’d ever been on. Jack and Troy are all about driving the masterpieces they build so we thought it would be a fitting way to honor his memory.”
