What's in the water in Darlington?  Perhaps the "curves" at the Brickyard are too dangerous? Who knows? I do know this: Danica Patrick's divorce pales to that of Dario Franchitti.

The three time Indy 500 winner and his more famous wife Ashley Judd have decided to part ways after over ten years of wedded bliss.

Unlike Patrick, Franchitti has had major success not only in IndyCar Racing, but was a former NASCAR Sprint Cup driver. He won the Indy 500 in 2007, 2010, and 2011.

Judd is a two time Golden Globe award winner and possibly a future senator.  She has made major overtures about possibly running for a senate seat in Kentucky. That is the seat of senate minority leader Mitch McConnell.

Patrick recently announced she was divorcing her husband Paul Hosspenthal. Recently, Patrick seems to be in the company of fellow race car driver Ricky Stenhouse Jr.

Patrick used to race on the Indy Circuit but has switched to the NASCAR circuit. She is winless in her career, save for a win years ago in Japan.
