Coming to the restart on Lap 82 of the 2014 Verizon IndyCar Series season opener at St. Petersburg, Will Power 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 Jack Hawksworth 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.

The track record is going to get wiped out Saturday in qualifying for Sunday’s Pocono 400 Fueled By Sunoco but Marco Andretti hopes that’s just the beginning of a great weekend.

Andretti ripped off a lap of 220.963 mph in his RC Cola Dallara/Chevy during Thursday’s open test — nine mph quicker than Emerson Fittipaldi’s mark of 211.715 set in 1989 — around the tricky tri-oval during seven hours of practice on a track that hasn’t hosted Indy cars in 24 years.
