Back in the late 80s or early 90s, Nelson owned his own automobile racing team. I cannot remember which organization he raced in. I believe that was before American LeMans came into existance. The car he owned was very much a predicessor of the current American LeMans prototype cars. Johnnie O'Connell was Nelson's co-driver. Perhaps there should be some mention of Nelson's auto racing career on his bigraphical page and perhaps some links to the American LeMans article, Johnnie O'Connell's article, and sports car racing articles in general.

I did a little more research and discovered the following: Nelson's team was Screaming Eagles Racing. The year was 1995. The series he raced in was managed by the International Motor Sports Association (IMSA). His car was a Spice SE90 with either a Lexus engine or an Oldsmobile engine depending upon which race you are talking about. He was not associated with Johnnie O'Connell. His co-driver was Dan Clark. Nelson also raced at least once with Dyson Racing, a team still active in ALMS racing. SEdwardB 16:19, 9 October 2007 (UTC)

The article says Jon Stewart "mocked" this statement, but he simply showed the video clip. The statement mocks itself ... and the person who said it, and the person he said it to, and all those who agree with it, and all those who have uttered similar sentiments. By saying what he did, Craig T. Nelson mocked the entire "Tea Party movement", far more effectively than any critic has. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 08:59, 29 September 2012 (UTC)
