Judd and Franchitti issued a statement saying, "We have mutually decided to end our marriage. We'll always be family and continue to cherish our relationship based on the special love, integrity, and respect we have always enjoyed."
Ashley's sister, Wynona Judd, served as maid of honor at the wedding and Dario's brother, Mario, was the best man. Judd was nominated for an Emmy for her performance in the TV series "Missing". She played a mom with a vengeance in the series. Franchitti won the Indy 500 championship three times. They do not have any children together.
