AdvertisementThere are advertisement boards on some of the tracks (like Arkansas Route 7, near the starting line) reading "Blue Sky Productions" which was one of the companies later forming Looking Glass.
EASNIn the "Monterey" screenshot, you can see a banner for "EASN" -- Electronic Arts' original acronym for their sports titles ("Electronic Arts Sports Network"). However, the cable sports network ESPN thought it was too similar to their trademark, so they threatened to sue if EA didn't change their name. EA changed "EASN" to "EA Sports".
