Coming to the restart on Lap 82 of the 2014 Verizon Series season opener at St. Petersburg, led the field out of the final hairpin to the green flag at a seemingly sluggish pace.

The cars began to accelerate towards the starting line and then all checked up again, resulting in a collision between and Marco Andretti. The question was raised as to whether Power had accelerated and then slowed down again, initiating the carnage. However, after reviewing the replays and telemetry, the stewards could find no fault with Power’s restart.
