INDIANAPOLIS, Tuesday, June 12, 2001 - The following is a statement from Tracey Hamilton, wife of Indy Racing Northern Light Series driver Davey Hamilton:

"I just want to thank everyone for their kind words and prayers. We have received literally hundreds of phone calls in the last few days regarding Davey's condition. Davey and I are both extremely touched by all of the sentiment throughout the racing community and, although we would like to answer all of the well wishes and concerns, we need to focus our time and energy towards getting Davey well. The Indy Racing Northern Light Series is doing a great job of keeping everyone updated on Davey's condition as it changes, and they will continue to be the source for updates on his recovery for the fans and all of our friends."

Hamilton is in stable condition at Methodist Hospital in Indianapolis for injuries sustained in a crash on Lap 73 of the Casino Magic 500 on June 9 at Texas Motor Speedway.

Hamilton recently moved to Eagle, Idaho, his home state, after living in Las Vegas for the past five years. His family extends its appreciation for the support it has received but is requesting no visitors. All cards and letters should be directed to:


Davey Hamilton
