Auto racing • Simon Pagenaud survived a demolition derby, winning the crash-filled Detroit Grand Prix on Sunday for his first IndyCar victory.

The Frenchman finished 5.6 seconds in front of James Jakes in the second of two races on the 2.36-mile Belle Isle street course.

"It was an amazing car," Pagenaud said. "We had more horsepower than anybody else out there."

The reigning IndyCar Rookie of the Year hadn't finished better than second in 39 IndyCar and Champ Car races.

"I've been working for this my whole career," Pagenaud said. "It's freaking awesome."

Mike Conway, who won Saturday's race with just three cautions, finished third.

Scott Dixon was fourth, followed by Dario Franchitti and Marco Andretti, who pulled into a tie with Helio Castroneves for the IndyCar points lead.

U.S. women shut out Canada

Soccer • Alex Morgan scored twice and Sydney Leroux added a goal to lead the United States over Canada 3-0 in Toronto in their first meeting since the Americans' 4-3 overtime win in the semifinals of last year's Olympic women's soccer tournament.

Morgan scored for the top-ranked Americans in the 70th minute when she cut inside defender Emily Zurrer and from the top of the penalty area slotted past goalkeeper Erin McLeod.

Morgan scored from the same spot two minutes later, her 44th international goal.

Veilleux won the 75-mile ride in 3 hours, 17 minutes, 35 seconds. Meersman was 1:56 back.
