Scooters Bar & Grill is hosting a fundraiser to help a White Lake native AFT racer.

Patrick Buchanan is a racer on the super-competitive American Flat Track circuit and is a sponsored rider of Scooters Bar & Grill. Back 2002, a non-racing-related injury forced Buchanan into early retirement. After 20 years on hiatus, the White Lake, Michigan native returned to the AFT Pro circuit to compete. Just recently, Patrick was injured during the Volusia Flat Track race and ended up losing two fingers on his left hand. However, that injury is not stopping him from chasing his life-long goal of making it on the podium.
