BRISTOL, Tenn. (AP) - Danica Patrick channeled her best Austin Powers impersonation to characterize her recent run of bad luck.
``Who throws a shoe?'' Patrick asked Friday in a faux English accent. ``I mean, really?''
The line from the original ``Austin Powers'' movie applies to Patrick after she ran over a shoe while leading last weekend at Montreal.
It's not clear if running over the shoe was entirely at fault for ruining her race, but it marked the beginning of the end of her attempt to win her first NASCAR race.
Patrick says she's stuck in a bad-luck streak unlike anything she's experienced in racing. She carries her misfortune into Bristol Motor Speedway this weekend, where she's scheduled to run both the Nationwide and Sprint Cup Series races.
