Maybe you don't see it, but you can hear it. Kirk definitely yells out "SAMMY!" as he whizzes by in the car.
So, how does him saying "Sammy" identify the guy as his brother?
Because we already know Kirk's brother's name. It's George Samuel Kirk, Jr. Kirk's the only one who calls him Sam, though.

This movie may change many things, but character names aren't one of them.
Who knows. It might be Kirk's older brother. But then again, the name he yells out can be one of two different names. I guess the novelization clears this up IF it bothers to even mention that one scene.
