No. 31 Koike Aronson Ransome Chevrolet News and Notes
• Pack racing on the Superspeedway...James Buescher and the No.31 Koike Aronson Ransome Chevrolet Silverado return to the high-banked superspeedway of Talladega.

• Welcome back...Turner Motorsports welcomes back Koike Aronson Ransome to the No. 31 truck for Saturday afternoon's race at Talladega Superspeedway. Koike Aronson Ransome designs and manufactures one of the world's broadest lines of welding positioners and thermal cutting products, as well as supplying portable and gas apparatus equipment. The company's history goes back to 1946 when Chuck Aronson founded the Aronson Machine Company, a welding positioner manufacturer at which he invented and patented positioners that are still used today. In 1985, Koike Sanso Kogyo (est. 1918) of Tokyo, Japan acquired Aronson Machine Company to add a world-class welding positioner line to their well-regarded cutting machine line. The result was a single company that supplied the market with the best welding positioners and thermal cutting products in the world. Then in 2001, Koike Aronson, Inc. purchased a large competitor, Ransome Company, based in Houston, TX. The acquisition allowed Koike Aronson to offer the most durable, safest and largest variety of positioning equipment ever. Today the company is known as Koike Aronson, Inc.

"This weekend's Talladega race is something I've been looking forward to pretty much since we left Daytona in February.

I'd like to get another pole and finish what we started in February."
