First to the Finish
In 1929, Clessie Cummins installed a Cummins diesel engine in a Packard limousine and went for a ride in America's first diesel-powered car. He would later use this car, and others like it, to set a number of speed and endurance records—including a 13,535-mile run at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway.
