The last souvenir is a cow.

In 'Wrong Turn' you can see a cow in the farmer animation.

Sometimes a cow appears on the Pit Stop, being refuled/milked. You can also see this cow intentionally :
1. Advance the speedway light to Quick Pit, using the right ramp.
2. Light the Award Speedway light on the right loop.
3. Shoot the right loop.
4. Hit the Launch button rapidly when the animation starts. The cow appears!

DOHO is spelt with the Spanner Targets, and is also sometimes seen in the skid/crasch animation in the Video mode.
