When NHRA drag racing star Doug Herbert lost his two young sons, Jon and James, in a tragic highway accident in January of 2008, his grief led to his resolve to create a driving program which would help to prevent other families from experiencing similar heartbreak by teaching young drivers more conscientious and confident skills behind the wheel.
Herbert wasted no time in putting his mission into motion. That same year, he created B.R.A.K.E.S. (Be Responsible and Keep Everyone Safe), a 501(c)3 organization which provides free advanced driver’s education in a program, entitled the Teen Pro-Active Driving Course.
Over 5,000 teenagers loose their lives each year across the country in traffic accidents. This staggering number of fatalities can be reduced through the efforts of B.R.A.K.E.S. and its Teen Pro-Active Driving Course.
In this image, we see Doug launching the B.R.A.K.E.S. Top Fueler with it's 10' flames at the famed ZMax Dragway in Concord N.C.
