Davey's racing career almost ended on June 9, 2001 following a devastating crash at the Texas Motor Speedway. After 21 operations and two years of rehabilitation in which he nearly lost his legs, Davey returned to IndyCar racing at the 91st running of the Indianapolis 500 in May 2007 and finished 9th.
Davey's strong faith and determination to once again race in the 500 were instrumental in securing a partnership with Kingdom Racing. Together, Davey and Kingdom Racing ran 4 consecutive Indy 500 mile races from 2008 to 2011. Kingdom Racing/Davey Hamilton competed in three IndyCar races in 2011, including the Indianapolis "Centennial" 500 Mile Race on May 29th. The other two races were Texas and Las Vegas. For 2012, Davey moved into the ownership role along with fellow INDYCAR veteran Sam Schmidt to form Schmidt Hamilton Motorsports, fielding the No. 77 HP Honda/Dallara driven by sensational rookie Simon Pagenaud. The combination was highly successful, resulting in 4 podium finishes and concluding the team's first full season an incredible fifth in the INDYCAR Series championship. For 2013, the expectations will certainly be high. "It's good to be back with Kingdom Racing," said Hamilton, who added "I have high hopes for good results this year both on and off the track for Kingdom Racing."
