How do you get to add catagories into the search criteria?

It would be helpful if I could decide what categories are added instead of just the drop down picks

There are subjects that are not listed & no way to add to them just a cryptic message telling me to pick what is there

Being a performance machine shop & performance engine builder I do not want to be listed as a generic auto machine shop 

Is there anyway to open these up so we as the owners can add are own subjects considering you review everything before listing anyway?

Thank you

I'm afraid 

there is no suhc option to add specific unlisted categories and there are good reasons for.

But use the feedback option of GoogleMyBusiness to make good feature requests.

And for oyur concrete case:

please use the possibilities to have "Structured data" on your website sending good and strong signals about your specifics.
