Power began his racing career in his native Australia competing in Formula Ford including a Queensland state championship in 2000 and a runner-up national finish in 2001. He won the Formula Holden championship and placed second in the Australian F3 series in 2002 as well as competing in the prestigious Bathurst 1000 event in the Virgin Australia Supercars Championship.
