Homan still unbeaten

BEIJING—Rachel Homan and Team Canada have taken sole possession of first place at the women's world curling championship with a 5-0 record.

Canada opened play today with a 7-5 win over the United States before edging previously-undefeated Switzerland 8-6.

The result put Homan's rink atop the table while the Swiss rink skipped by Alina Paetz slipped to 4-1.

No penalties over brawl

CHARLOTTE, N.C.—NASCAR on Wednesday declined to penalize Kyle Busch, Joey Logano, or their crews for their post-race scuffle at Las Vegas Motor Speedway on Sunday.

The hard racing for position led to Busch confronting Logano after the race and throwing a punch.

Busch was knocked to the ground by Team Penske crew members and cut his forehead in the scuffle.
