"It's only natural, I guess, that a fast-growing international
company based in Indianapolis that represents famous sports personalities
would gravitate towards racing. We did, and for the past several years
we've owned cars, represented drivers, and sponsored cars. One of
our first racing clients was Scott Brayton. On May 17, 1996, Scott
tragically lost his life in a fatal crash during practice at the Indianapolis
"In 1996, Scott was at the top of the racing world. Six days
before the accident, Scott captured his second consecutive Indy 500
pole position. In dramatic fashion, he withdrew a car he had earlier
qualified to jump into a backup car, winning the coveted top position
for the May 26th Indianapolis 500. He was the favorite to win the
world's most prestigious auto race.
"The danger and speed of auto racing never prepares you for losing
a friend. Scott was an inspiration to everyone that knew him. Always
an upbeat person, he was considered to be racing's most popular driver
and speaker, even in far away places like Japan and Australia.
"Scott is survived by his wife, Becky, and his daughter, Carly.
We at CMG grieve the loss of Scott. Racing will not be the same without
