NASCAR driver Danica Patrick is ending her seven year marriage to Paul Hospenthal.

“I am sad to inform my fans that after 7 years, Paul and I have decided to amicably end our marriage,” Patrick said in a statement. “This isn’t easy for either of us, but mutually it has come to this. He has been an important person and friend in my life and that’s how we will remain moving forward.”

Hospenthal and Patrick met when he was her physical therapist while Patrick was racing in the IndyCar Series. She made the move to NASCAR on a part time basis in 2010 and raced fulltime in the NASCAR Nationwide series in 2012 scoring four top ten finishes. MORE>>>
