Indianapolis was 15 years into the 20th century on September 14, 1915, when James A. Allison founded the Indianapolis Speedway Team Company - the forerunner of today's Allison Transmission. From those beginnings, the company has become the world leader in the design, manufacture and sales of automatic transmissions for trucks, buses, off-road and military vehicles.
