Sometimes, Midway makes an average N64 port of an average arcade game that doesn't really have anything odd in it. And sometimes...just sometimes...

it's California Speed.

Unused Weather Setting

Placeholder Texture

The message in-game.

Maybe if they made it bright green...

In the track Mojave Desert, there is a "hidden message" on a billboard very close to the starting line that reads

SoMETIMES...	
God TAkES MOMMIES
ANd PuPPIES AWAY...
And SoMETIMES... 
JuST SoMETIMES...

I do

According to developer Morgan Godat, this was simply a placeholder texture that someone forgot to replace.
