Danica Patrick led Saturday's NASCAR Nationwide Series race in Montreal for about 20 laps until she ran over a shoe that was thrown onto the race track.

Danica ran right over the shoe, which seemed harmless enough, until she started having issues with her track bar and had to make an extra stop in the pits so her crew could make adjustments.

The extra stop cost Danica the lead and probably her best shot at winning the race, all because some jerk decided to throw a shoe onto the track. The funny thing is the shoe probably would have done less damage if it hit the car directly.

  • She lost the lead as soon as yellow stop and the Jacques Villeneuve took over the lead again, she used the shoe as an excuse that was having problems with the steering because she knew she could hold off the Jacques Villeneuve, she was just lucky the leaders came in for refueling to let her take the lead until the caution came out and lasted for about 10 lapse, she had no chance in winning the race, she not good driver, history will tell you that?
