Broken Bow/Holeshot recording artist Krista Marie has come up with a unique way to combine career promotion and a good song with a good cause. The western New York-born singer/songwriter, who is also a champion ATV Motocross racer, is the cowriter of her single, “Drive It Like I Stole It,” which has been picked as the theme song for ESPN’s coverage of NHRA drag racing’s 2009 season. On the track and on tour, driving safety is always on Marie’s mind, which is why her association B.R.A.K.E.S is such a good fit. B.R.A.K.E.S., which stands for Be Responsible and Keep Everyone Safe, was founded by drag racer Doug Herbert after he lost his two sons in a tragic automobile accident. The nonprofit organization promotes safe and responsible driving. To support the organization, Marie and her label have made a ringtone available for “Drive It Like I Stole It,” and will donate 100% of the proceeds to B.R.A.K.E.S. “With my motorsports background and the fact that I’m traveling more and more with my music career, I couldn’t think of a better organization to partner with than B.R.A.K.E.S.,” Marie said.
