Casual NASCAR Fan Fails To Appreciate Subtleties Of Eight-Car Crash

WESTCHESTER, NY—Occasional stock-car-racing viewer Rob Kleindienst remained unaware of, if not unimpressed by, the strategic and mechanical intricacies of a late-race accident involving eight different drivers in last Sunday's Dickies 500 at the Texas Speedway.

"It was, like, sheeeoow! Whammo! Guys flying everywhere."
