The 30-year-old NASCAR driver announced the split on her Facebook page Tuesday (Nov. 20), writing, "I am sad to inform my fans that after 7 years, Paul and I have decided to amicably end our marriage. 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, a 47-year-old physical therapist, and Patrick met when he was treating her for a non-racing injury. They married in 2005.
