And RLR/Anderson driver Andrew Prendeville is a total shark. Just ask Michael Andretti.

JACKSON, Calif. -- Indy Pro Series driver Andrew Prendeville showed he can do more than just drive a racecar on Wednesday at Jackson Rancheria Casino & Hotel in Jackson.

Prendeville, who drives for RLR/Andersen Racing in the Indy Pro Series, displayed his poker skills by out-dueling several drivers at the inaugural Speedway Children’s Charities Poker Tournament. The event was held in advance of the Motorola Indy 300, presented by Jackson Rancheria, at Infineon Raceway this weekend (Aug. 24-26).

For his efforts, Prendeville was presented with a $10,000 check from Jackson Rancheria. The monies will go to qualified youth organizations in Sonoma County through Speedway Children’s Charities, the charitable arm of Infineon Raceway, in Prendeville’s name.

Prendeville was joined at the card table by IndyCar® Series driver Tony Kanaan, team owner Michael Andretti and Grand American Rolex Sports Car Series driver Scott Pruett, an Auburn resident. Members of the media rounded out the nine-person table. (MORE from
