Finish Line Automotive & Performance was founded by Greg Zerban and Jonny Santanni in February 2005. Prior to starting Finish Line, both Greg and Jonny gained valuable motorsports experience through a variety of ways.
Greg has always had a deep passion for high performance cars and first started racing back in the 1980's! (Yes, he is older than he looks). He bought a 1990 Mustang coupe specifically for drag racing and was very successful racing this car in Stock, Superstock, and Wild Street classes over the years. Between 1992 - 1998, Greg and this car were undefeated at the Brainerd International Raceway/Champion Auto Stores "Show-n-Go" race series. In 1999, Greg and his mustang won the Car Craft Summer Nationals dyno competition. The car has been raced all over the country in a variety of classes, and has also been in Car Craft, and Muscle Mustangs and Fast Fords magazines. The mustang is set to come out of storage for the 2012 race season. Look for it to make appearances in Limited Street and King Street.
Jonny originally started going to the race track with his family as a very young boy. Going to the Nationals at Brainerd International Raceway became a fun yearly tradition. Both Jonny's father, and uncle, had been drag racers for many years. His uncle even raced a Mustang against Warren Johnson back in the late 60s.
With racing in his blood, and a desire to go fast, Jonny began racing motorcross. Over the years he has won many classes racing all over the midwest.
Jonny went to school to become an automotive technician and received his ASE master certification back in 1995. Since that time, he has continued to develop his skills, and is a specialist at all the mechanical systems of a car.
