The car on its side (not on its roof) in turn 5 was Rich Hroman, who was the race leader and setting the pace in the rain.

I was certainly NOT the smarter driver -- I was the LUCKIER driver to see the yellow flag and let up just enough on my speed by that time to avoid the tire (and car) wall.

Thank you all for your comments (except Nadir...).
