About Us


Zitterich Motorsports was founded in 1979 by Gary Zitterich out of a one stall garage at his parents home in northwest Sioux Falls. What started as a hobby quickly grew into one of the most successful auto repair facilities in the area. The goal was not to become one of the biggest companies in South Dakota, but become a business that would build its customer base on the efforts of Loyalty, Customer Friendly Service, and Giving the Customer the best service at the best available price possible.

zitterich-familyGary Zitterich came to be known as one of the best foreign auto mechanics in the Upper Midwest. After placing first in the City, and second in the Regional National Plymouth Trouble Shooting Contest in 1969, he later took a job as a technician at Ryan Motors, now Billion Automotive. As he honed his skills as an auto mechanic while specializing in Datsun/Nissan, Honda, and Toyota’s while later taking a job at UPS as a mechanic – he decided that he wanted to move on to the next challenge of his life; owning his own Repair Shop. And sometime during the summer of 1979, he decided to officially build his business literally from his parents backyard out of a one stall garage; before long the need for more space, by creating more demand, he later expanded to three mechanics and eventually at one point, Zitterich Motorsports employed 5 technicians at once. Now we have become a true “Family” owned business where all but one employee is related.

Customer Service has become the trade mark symbol to the success of Zitterich Motorsports. We pride ourselves on taking that extra effort necessary. From educating our customers on general maintenance of their vehicles, to giving them the best price available, while treating them as if they are family. We literally go that extra mile to please you, the customer. As is the case with Healthcare, people do not enjoy spending money on vehicle repairs, the expense is usually high, and not expected over a course of twelve months. We treat every situation as a unique experience while maintaining that Customer Satisfaction people have come to expect from Our Repair Facility. We like to think here at Zitterich Motorsports, it is not just about making money, it is more about making friendships, relationships, while having the chance to serve your needs. The ability to maintain your vehicle, and earn your trust is the most important form of Customer Service required of us to properly serve your needs.

So remember, the next time your vehicle breaks down, or you simply need that basic service such as an oil change, give us a call.
