Gutierrez to replace injured Bourdais at Detroit Grand Prix

DETROIT — Dale Coyne Racing has selected Esteban Gutierrez to replace Sebastien Bourdais at the Detroit Grand Prix.

Bourdais broke his pelvis, a hip and two ribs in a crash during qualifying for the Indianapolis 500.

Gutierrez, a former Formula One driver, will make his IndyCar debut Saturday in the first of two races this weekend on Belle Isle.

The 25-year-old Mexican may get an extended opportunity to race in the series if he fares well in Detroit because Bourdais is out indefinitely. James Davison filled in for Bourdais at Indy and finished 20th in the 33-car field.
