Danica Patrick is again driving single.

The NASCAR driver is separating from Paul Hospenthal, her husband of seven years, she announced Tuesday on her Facebook page.

"I am sad to inform my fans that after seven years, Paul and I have decided to amicably end our marriage," Patrick wrote. "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."

Patrick made the announcement a few hours after she posted a video in which she thanked fans for voting her the most popular driver on NASCAR's mid-tier Nationwide Series circuit.
