INDIANAPOLIS — The Indianapolis Motor Speedway and Cummins are teaming up in a sponsorship deal celebrating the engine maker's 100th anniversary.

The agreement was made public Wednesday and includes extensive signage for the Columbus-based company during the 500, the IndyCar Grand Prix and the Brickyard 400.

Part of the deal includes a parade lap before the 500 that will feature five Cummins-restored cars.

"This partnership with the Indy 500 is celebrating out first 100-years and sharing with our customers, our employees and people everywhere," said Cummins Chief Technology Officer Jennifer Rumsey.

Cummins has some history at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway.

The engine maker's first appearance in the 500 was in 1931 and the last was in 1952.
