#1 Fan throwing a shoe at Danica Patrick
Another example of disrespect to the sport and the drivers that compete in it was in Montreal back in 2012, where a fan threw a shoe at Danica Patrick while she was leading. The shoe was thrown from the stands to the racing groove and was eventually run over by Patrick while she was leading the race.
Unfortunately for Patrick, the shoe messed up her car and she was forced to surrender the lead and ultimately the race win. If nothing else, this just kind of showed how against progress NASCAR fans were at the time, especially since this could have been Patrick’s first win ever in The Xfinity Series and will also go down as one of the biggest screw jobs in NASCAR history!
