Introduction:

Team ScioNRG was formed in 2004 when Omar Chavez (current CEO & Founder) was looking for people on ScionLife who wanted to meet and share their stories and passion for the Scion brand. The first meet was held at a coffee shop in NYC where six cars showed up. Soon after, team ScioNRG doubled and in less than a few months we grew much larger than just a local team.

Club / Team History:

We started off in the tri-state area, but ScioNRG quickly grew to cover areas all over the United States, with a chapter in Guam as well!
