Two months after announcing their separation via Facebook, Danica Patrick has filed for divorce from her husband Paul Hospenthal.

According to The Sporting News, court papers were filed on January 3 on behalf of the 30-year-old NASCAR sensation.

The documents claim the marriage was "irretrievably broken" with no prospect of reconciliation.

The couple met in 2004 when Danica sought treatment from Hospenthal, a physical therapist, for a hip injury. They married in 2005.
