Dario Franchitti and Ashley Judd are calling it quits after 10 years of marriage.

The former couple said in a statement announcing their plans to divorce:

"We have mutually decided to end our marriage. We'll always be family and cherish our relationship based on the special love, integrity, and respect we have always enjoyed."

Ashley Judd, 44, and Dario Franchitti, 39, driver tied the knot in a highly private ceremony in Scotland in 2001 after being engaged for two years before that.

Racecar driver Franchitti competes in the IndyCar Series where he was 2007 champion, and he even won the rain-shortened 2007 Indianapolis 500.

Judd's acting credits are well known, but is a run for office in her future?

She's been talked about as a possible 2014 Senate candidate in Kentucky, where Democrats want her to challenge GOP Majority Leader Mitch McConnell.
