INDIANAPOLIS, Tuesday, May 29, 2001 - Indy Racing League veteran Davey Hamilton won the Scott Brayton Driver's Trophy during the Indianapolis 500 Victory Celebration on May 27 at Indianapolis.

Hamilton, from Las Vegas, received the annual award for best exemplifying the character and racing spirit of late driver Scott Brayton. Hamilton, who has started all 47 Indy Racing League events since 1996, also was presented with $25,000 for winning the award.

Brayton, a 14-time Indianapolis 500 starter, was killed in a practice crash in May 1996 at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway just days after winning his second consecutive Indianapolis 500 pole.
