32571 Brayton           Discovered 2001 Aug. 20 by C. Wolfe at Terre Haute.
Scott Brayton (1959-1996) tragically lost his life in a crash at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway just six days after dramatically capturing his second consecutive Indy 500 pole position. He is remembered for his strong character, optimistic attitude and infectious laughter.
