Pat Buchanan began his racing career in 1980 at eight years old. Unlike most flat trackers starting at local dirt tracks, Buchanan began on the frozen lakes of Michigan, when his legendary Uncle Randy “BUCKO” Buchanan put him on a 1974 Yamaha GT80. It was not until seven years later that he hit the dirt track scene running at a local half mile. In a few short years, with BUCKO by his side, Buchanan went on to obtain his professional license as a regular in what was known back then in AMA Pro Dirt Track Racing as the Pro-Am division, and won the 1990 Eastern Division USA #1 plate. He continued on to earn and carry the national number #75 for four years until a practice accident caused a severe head injury, which unfortunately ended the beginning of what could have been a very successful career. Move forward twenty years later, and the desire has never retired. Buchanan returned to the sport with the new national number #71, which was a strategic pick based on his birth year. Buchanan gives major credit to Bryan Smith and Brad Baker for pushing him to pursue his incredible passion for riding at this level. Buchanan invites race fans to follow the journey of one of the sport’s oldest active competitors on his social pages @pbracing71.
