Darren Turner has been chosen to replace the late Dan Wheldon in the V8 Supercars Gold Coast 600 this weekend in Australia at the Queensland Raceway.

Wheldon was killed Sunday in a 15-car accident in the IndyCar season finale at Las Vegas Motor Speedway. The two-time Indy 500 champion was one of six IndyCar drivers who had committed to the race at Queensland.

The others are Ryan Briscoe, Helio Castroneves, Alex Tagliani, Will Power and Tony Kanaan. Power has withdrawn due to an injured back from Sunday’s IndyCar race and Kanaan said that he is sitting out due to Wheldon’s death.

The race will also feature eight Formula 1 drivers including Tonio Liuzzi, Emanuele Pirro and Gil de Ferran.

Will Power won his second straight race at Infineon Raceway and then shared the podium with two of his teammates, who finished second and third.

Helio Castroneves and Ryan Briscoe completed a 1-2-3 sweep for Team Penske at the Indy Grand Prix of Sonoma, the first time that has happened for owner Roger Penske in nearly 20 years.

Power led 71 of the 75 laps while winning his second consecutive race from the pole at Sonoma, the same track where his career almost ended in 2009 after a terrible crash.

Power has a career-high five victories, one shy of the IndyCar single-season record.

INDIANAPOLIS – Every year at the Indianapolis 500 fans and media witnesses something they had not seen in previous races.

The 23-year-old Californian, who passed veteran driver Dario Franchitti on lap 196, would’ve been the first rookie to win the Indy 500 since Helio Castroneves in 2001. But it was not to be.
