DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. - Hes been nosing around it for a while and Steve Mathews feels its time to take the next step. Mathews splashed onto the scene in 2009 in his NASCAR Canadian Tire Series presented by Mobil 1 debut at the Speedway at Canadian Tire Motorsport Park in Bowmanville, Ontario by setting fast time in practice and the race results showed it wasnt a stab in the dark. After qualifying fourth, the now 22-year-old out of New Liskeard, Ontario finished sixth to prove that he could compete with Canadas best stock-car competitors. In three subsequent races on that same half-mile oval Mathews has driven his No. 15 Bill Mathews Motors Ford to two more top-10 finishes and a start from the outside pole position a year ago in the Clarington 200. After 22 series starts - primarily on ovals - across five seasons now, Mathews, who scored a series career-best finish of third on June 15 at Delaware (Ontario) Speedway, has three top-five finishes and two pole wins. While not an indictment on his performance Mathews notes the glaring lack of a victory. Considering the competition, its not a huge red flag, but he thinks its past time to go to Victory Lane. Further whetting his appetite for a win was last Septembers battle at Barrie (Ontario) Speedway. Mathews started from the pole position and had a late-race lead before tangling with some traffic resulting in a disappointing finish in fourth. "I really thought we had that one, but it didnt work out," said Mathews. "When you get that close it makes you want it even more. I have no doubt that well get there. We have a solid team." Cutting his racing teeth on the half-mile oval at Delaware, Mathews believes the two Ontario tracks are similar enough for the experience to transfer. "I began my career at Delaware and the two tracks are fairly similar," he said. "We run the same gear and the setups are pretty close. There are a few differences between the two (tracks), but I feel comfortable there." The relatively flat egg-shaped oval at CTMP creates some setup problems for race teams, but Mathews enjoys competing there. "I like that track," he stated. "It can be a little tricky, but everyone knows it well and will be ready for the race. I dont expect anyone to be surprised." The stakes for the Clarington 200 were raised last week with Canadian Tire Motorsport Parks announcement that they will cease operation of the oval track later this summer to continue the ongoing renovation of the facility by the new ownership group that came onboard in 2011. "I absolutely would love to win the last Canadian Tire Series race there," declared Mathews.

MINNEAPOLIS -- Tight end Kyle Rudolphs two most productive seasons for the Minnesota Vikings were those in which he played every game.After all the surgeries, crutches and rehab, Rudolph has found a training program to supplement team-supervised workouts and improve his durability. The sturdiness of his body at 26 has become as important as the agility and strength needed to thrive in the NFL.Its all about playing 16 games, said Rudolph, who has overcome operations on his hamstring and both hips, plus a broken foot and a sprained knee.He enjoyed an injury-free season in 2015, his first since 2012. Rudolph found his happy place in downtown Minneapolis at the Mayo Clinic Sports Medicine Center through a joint venture with the specialized performance training firm EXOS.Jennifer Krogmans goal was just to do some pushups again after a wrist injury.It was a thrill, she said. This was the first progress Id ever made.After eight surgeries in nine years on her broken left wrist, Krogman has finally discovered a way to work out at an intense level without neglecting or damaging the joint that has troubled her.The activities this former high school basketball player and track sprinter has been engaging in at Mayos EXOS site in Rochester, Minnesota, actually arent that all dissimilar from what Rudolph has done to prepare for the football season.The elite athlete is the beacon that gets all the attention, but those same principles trickle down to how we treat every athlete, said Dr. Ed Laskowski, the co-director of Mayos sports medicine operation.Founded in 1999 in the Phoenix area as Athletes Performance, Inc., EXOS has used its experience training first-round draft picks and Olympians as a springboard into the corporate world. EXOS has more than 100 business clients, strengthening employee wellness programs or helping business travelers seeking healthier lifestyles.Call this the combine for the common folks.Obviously, the stakes are a little bit different. There may not be an audience. It may not be televised, but it still has a great internal impact on you, said Alex Lincoln, an EXOS vice president and a former linebacker at Auburn and with the San Francisco 49ers.EXOS is far from alone in the fitness marketplace. But the program is based on four pillars: mindset, movement, nutrition and recovery. Personalized, sustainable and measurable are parameters for implementation, blending high technology with sports science.Trainers can pull out an iPad to evaluate an athletes stride in attempt to correct a mechanical flaw or prevent further injury.A lot of exercise is based on tradition.dddddddddddd Were going to do something because thats what Arnold did to get stronger or a coach has told us stuff. Very well-meaning coaches, but a lot of stuff they told us was based on tradition and not based on the rules of the body, Laskowski said. So as weve developed those areas, weve found that there are biomechanical patterns that need to be optimal. Perfect practice makes perfect. We want you to be doing it right from the first time.Even with a wide range of costs, the individualized workout isnt cheap. Krogmans five-times-per-week sessions break down to about $20 apiece, though, a fee shes says is as worthy as the 5:45 a.m. starts.Now that shes mastered techniques for the deadlifts and other weight-bearing exercises without compromising her wrist, Krogman has set her sight on a more ambitious cardiovascular goal: the 7-minute mile she once could run.Everyone else has always told me, `No, you cant do this. You just have to get used to walking, running, riding a bike. Lifting weights, you cant do, Krogman said. I was like, `No, Im pretty sure I can still do that.College athletes have signed up for the program. Haley Nielsen and Stephen Kalina have taken part in small-group sessions at the Mayo-EXOS site in Minneapolis this summer, pushing sleds on the artificial turf and sweating through plyometric box jumps.Nielsen, a hockey player for Wisconsin-River Falls, came in search of more explosiveness on the ice. Kalina, a middle infielder at Purdue, wanted to stay in shape and add strength and weight while many of his teammates were playing in summer leagues.Im hoping to come back and show how beneficial it is, Nielsen said.Another key to the program is sports-specific movements that work the muscle groups needed to perform in game time. Kalina envisions stealing a base during crossover drills as he tries to explode out of his first three or four steps. Then there are the core muscles and leg muscles that generate the power in a swing.Its great to have the big biceps and all that, Kalina said, but you need a stronger base, so we really focus on that.Rudolph finished his second summer at EXOS before the Vikings reported to training camp. These days, his focus is efficiency and agility drills to mimic route-running down the field.A lot of times the guys who are covering me are much faster than I am, Rudolph said, but if Im moving efficiently, not wasting any motion, it gives me an advantage to get open.
