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.

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!

Some of our members participate in professional car shows such as Hot Import Nights, NHRA Summer Nationals and NOPI. We have won numerous trophies, such as "Best NorthEast Team" at last year's Exposed event, Best Scion Mild & Wild categories at the Carlisle Modified Madness event and more! Our members have participated in Scion VIP car show and drag events, winning numerous trophies.
