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 Power has withdrawn due to an injured back from Sunday’s IndyCar race and Kanaan said that he is sitting out due to Wheldon’s death.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.

Franchitti won his third win of the season in the IRL’s return to racing at the Milwaukee Mile, a historical track which goes back to 1903 but did not host any major races in 2010 due to financial problems by the previous promoters. The stands were one-third full on Sunday.

Scottish race car driver Dario Franchitti, widely-known as the husband of actress Ashley Judd, is showing that he’ll be a force in the 2011 IndyCar series.

Franchitti, a two-time defending series champion was dominant in the opening race of the season, leading 94 of 100 laps on the 1.8-mile street course to beat out Will Power by more than seven seconds.

The win was Franchitti’s first and fifth top-five finish in six starts in the Honda Grand Prix of St. Petersburg, Florida.

Franchitti took control early in the race and was never really challenged at all.

Tony Kanaan, who joined his new racing team on Monday, held off Simona de Silvestro in the final laps for third place.

De Silvestro finished fourth, her best finish in 16 career starts.

Danica Patrick, in her seventh IndyCar season finished a disappointing 12th. She was penalized one spot on the final lap for making “avoidable contact” with JR Hildebrand.

New Albany, Ohio native Graham Rahal finished 17th driving for Ganassi Racing.
