It was just past 3 a.m. when Will Power was awakened from a deep sleep on the top floor of his hotel in Napa, California. The IndyCar Series points leader was in the middle of his first earthquake and wasn't certain he was going to make it out alive.

Power had never before been in an earthquake, and the magnitude-6.0 quake shaking wine country on race day morning terrified the Australian.

"I looked at (wife) Liz and I said, 'This is it! This is the end of the world'!" Power said Monday in a telephone interview.

Cincinnati (1-2) had no significant injuries to its starters during a 19-13 win in Arizona on Sunday night. Pro Bowl linebacker Vontaze Burfict left in the first quarter with a pulled right hamstring.
