Daytona USA Extra Time
On the beginner track there is a slot machine on the top of the stone arch. To play the slot machine, press Start to stop the movement of the wheels. If you get a 777 you'll gain extra time.

Daytona USA Fast Start
In the transmission selection screen hold the "Start" button down, you will notice that it says "Real Players Only". Keep holding the "Start" button down, until the transmission selection time runs out (You have to choose manual.) From my knowledge this only works on the beginner track. Continue holding the start button down through the whole first lap. If you notice you reach 210 mph just before the Jackpot machine. This will give you at least 2 car lengths lead over other racers that don't do the cheat (if you do it right and don't bump any other cars). This will give you time to get away from the rest of the field and keep on truckin'.

Daytona USA No Computer Opponents
Hold the start button at the transmission select screen. The words REAL RACERS ONLY will appear across the screen. All of the racers must hold down the START button until they choose the desired transmission for the code to work. When the race starts you will notice that there are no computer racers. If you are playing by yourself pushing the start button will enable you to race in a time trial mode.
