The name lakester was coined as the result of cars of this type running on dry-lake beds in and around Southern California and neighboring states. Because they are built for top speeds only, many of them carry no transmissions or starters. They may have any specially constructed body that does not exceed 36 inches maximum width. Wheel coverings are taboo.

Safety belts were generally required equipment on all cars entered in competition. Usually they are attached to the frame of the car.
