The Transworld Race Series has been the sight of the first race for many young racers as they start out in motocross, and the Perris Raceway round of the Terra Firma Series was no different.  This time, however, one of the new racers was the son of Nick Wey.  Vincent came out to Perris for his first race, and though he had the typical first race mishaps, he proved he had been practicing and has the skills to be a strong competitor.  Vincent competed in the PeeWee Open and the PeeWee Starter classes and grabbed his first moto win and a 4th place overall in the PeeWee Starter class.  Throughout the day, Vincent was cheered on by his sister, younger brother as well as his parents.
