The award-winning rock band CTS (Consider The Source) has joined forces with CD Baby, the worldÕs largest digital distributor of independent music, to benefit the non-profit 501 (c) organization B.R.A.K.E.S. (Be Responsible, Keep Everyone Safe) Their goal is to generate additional funding to take the B.R.A.K.E.S. life-saving student driving education programs nationwide. CTS recently issued a new single recording of their popular drag racing song, ÒQuarter Mile,Ó on CD Baby and other music download services, with proceeds dedicated to the B.R.A.K.E.S. Safe Driving Programs for teenage drivers.
As part of this fundraising effort, the NHRA (National Hot Rod Association) will lend promotional support through its numerous marketing platforms, including social media and NHRA.com, to promote the songÕs availability.
B.R.A.K.E.S. has provided safe driving instruction courses for over 8,000 students from 19 different states and 2 countries. The organizationÕs goal is to increase funding to introduce the B.R.A.K.E.S. program to public & private schools throughout North America with the goal of reducing teen driving accidents.
ÒThe song ÔQuarter Mile,Õ was inspired by a drag racing friend of mine who said she lived her life a quarter mile at a time. I was so impressed by all the obstacles sheÕd overcome to pursue her racing passion, I had to write a song comparing her lifeÕs journey to achieving any dream we have,Ó stated Jeff Senour, founder of CTS.

ÒWe are excited about this unique fundraising effort with CD Baby to benefit B.R.A.K.E.S., our goal is to generate additional funding so the program can be offered nationwide,Ó said Senour.
CTS introduced the "Freedom Rock ExperienceÓ concert series to feature the talents of select high school orchestras to provide a new fundraising and performing opportunity for music students. The new ÒQuarter MileÓ recording is a result of the new concert series and features the full orchestra symphonic sounds of Beau Shekeryk.
The new ÒQuarter MileÓ music download is available on CTSmusic.com, CD Baby, ITunes, and Amazon.

NHRA Top Fuel Dragster driver/owner, Doug Herbert, lost his two sons, Jon (17), and James (12), in an automobile accident in January 2008.
