The entire accident only took a few seconds -- from the car's flipping, to the explosion, to the driver running out of the car screaming and on fire -- but it was still one of the funniest things the fans had ever seen. "Oh, man. That was awesome," said Richard Jensen. "This was the first time I've been to a funny car race, but if they are all this good, I'll be back again. Hi-larious. It's rare these days for something to be understated in its title."Jon Heller, the driver whose car exploded, was happy to entertain the crowd."It's always hard to hear the laughter when the flames are roaring all around you," said Heller. "But once the bandages are removed from over my ears upon completion of the skin grafts, I will listen to the tapes."
