Clessie Cummins was part of Ray Harroun’s pit crew in 1911 when Harroun’s Marmon Wasp won the first Indy 500 race. Cummins would go on to make the first practical and reliable diesel truck engines, but he never lost his love of racing at Indianapolis. He entered diesel powered cars in three races, setting a record in his first attempt by finishing the race without stopping, the diesel’s fuel economy was so good. His most impressive attempt, though, ended up being a DNF, because in 1952, with Freddie Agabashian at the wheel, the Cummins Diesel Special set both one lap and four lap records for the Speedway, starting the race on the pole.
