California Speed is a racing game by Atari Games originally released in the arcades in 1998, and ported to the Nintendo 64 a year later.

As the title suggests, all of the courses in the game are based in California, with the original including Silicon Valley, Santa Cruz, Monterey, Laguna Seca, Highway 1, San Francisco, Central Valley, Los Angeles, Willow Springs, San Diego, Yosemite, Mount Shasta, Mojave Desert, and Sears Point courses. Nintendo 64 version added Clover, Oval, Fuji and San Andreas courses, along with a special bonus track where you raced through a shrunken down version of the entire state, but removed Lugana Seca, Willow Springs and Sears Point.

The game itself has the same kind of fast-paced, arcade-style racing as seen in San Francisco Rush and Cruis'n USA. The arcade version even awarded a free game if you came in first place.
