While leading at Montreal, Danica Patrick hits a shoe
Who throws a shoe? Apparently, someone at Montreal. While leading Saturday's Nationwide Series race at the Circuit Gilles Villeneuve, a spectator threw a shoe onto the track, and the shoe landed in the racing groove. As Danica Patrick led the field back to the spot where the shoe was, she ran it over squarely and its remains shot out from underneath her car.
It looked innocuous enough -- it's just a sneaker, right? Well, Patrick's car immediately started to lose the handling and eventually, what looked to be a bracket or a bolt came out from underneath her car. Her chances at the win were over. She finished 26th, six laps down.
