NASCAR starlet Danica Patrick is single once again.

The soon-to-be bachelorette announced on her Facebook page that she and her husband of seven years, Paul Hospenthal, are ending their marriage.

"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," Patrick wrote.

Hospenthal, who was 17 years older than Patrick, opened a physical therapy business in Scottsdale, Ariz.

Patrick just completed her first full-time season in NASCAR with four top-10 finishes in 33 Nationwide races.

She finished 10th in driver points, which was the highest for a female driver in any NASCAR series.
