If you delete all data and meticulously hold off on beating any of the competitors before 2 '40' 00, the time records offer an interesting Easter Egg in the form of some name drops for various Nintendo characters. Among them is Princess Toadstool as Peach. Following Yoshi's Safari, this is only the second game to refer to her by that name outside of Japan.

Minor Circuit
Gabby Jay
7. 2' 11" 83....*Wario
Bear Hugger
7. 2' 10" 84....*Luigi
Piston Hurricane
7. 2' 27" 33....*Mario
Bald Bull
7. 2' 19" 69....*Peach

Major Circuit
Bob Charlie
7. 1' 50" 07....*Zelda
8. 2' 13" 96....*DK Jr.
Dragon Chan
8. 2' 17" 27....*Icarus
Masked Muscle
8. 2' 34" 91....*Kirby
Mr. Sandman
8. 1' 37" 47....*Kong

World Circuit
Aran Ryan
8. 2' 34" 66....*Link
Heike Kagero
8. 2' 39" 15....*Nester
Mad Clown
8. 2' 37" 14....*Pit
Super Machoman
8. 2' 33" 21....*Samus

Unfortunately, the character names stop there and are instead replaced with generic ones.

Special Circuit
Narcus Prince
8. 2' 41" 93....*MIRROR
Hoy Quarlow
8. 2' 51" 49....*So Fun
Rick Bruiser
8. 2' 50" 82....*Caesar
Nick Bruiser
8. 2' 55" 78....*Caesar

However, No. 7 on Nick Bruiser is widely believed to be a reference to Glass Joe from the earlier Punch-Out.

7. 2' 47" 43....*G. Joe
