DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (AP) - Former NASCAR champion Kurt Busch says he is legally separated from his wife and in the process of formally ending his marriage.
Busch married Eva Bryan in 2006, three years to the day of them meeting on a blind date.
Eva Busch has not been seen this season at the track, where wives and girlfriends have a heavy presence on pit road and atop the pit boxes during races.
But Busch was not asked about his marital status until Thursday, four days after he kissed another woman in Victory Lane last week at Sonoma.
He read from prepared remarks in addressing his marital status, and says his personal life has not affected his racing.
Busch's win last week was his first of the season, and he's fourth in the Sprint Cup standings.
