    WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. (AP) -- Jeff Gordon's wife has filed for divorce after seven years of marriage to the four-time Winston Cup champion, The Palm Beach Post reported Saturday.
    Brooke Gordon said the marriage is ``irretrievably broken'' in court papers filed Friday, the newspaper said. It did not specify the problems.
    She and her husband are considered the highest-profile couple in NASCAR, appearing together in commercials and magazine articles.
    Jeff Gordon, in Darlington, S.C., for the Carolina Dodge Dealers 400, would not elaborate on the report Saturday.
    ``I hope you guys can respect me at this time,'' he said. ``We're going to say something next week about it.''
    Telephone messages by The Associated Press to Gordon's lawyer, Georgia Newman, were not immediately returned Saturday. No one answered at the Palm Beach County Clerk of Courts office.
    Brooke Gordon is seeking exclusive use of the couple's oceanfront home, valued at $9 million, as well as alimony, two cars and periodic use of their boats and an airplane, the newspaper said.
    Gordon's 32-year-old wife also wants her husband to continue to pay the salaries of their housekeepers, maintenance workers and chef.
    Jennifer Brooke Sealey was a Miss Winston when she met Gordon in victory lane after a race at Daytona International Speedway. They married Nov. 26, 1994, and have no children.
    Jeff Gordon is in his 10th full season in Winston Cup. The 30-year-old driver has won four championships, 58 races and more than $45 million in prize money.

    Hailing from Indianapolis myslef...I have always been a fan of Jeff Gordon (and Tony Stewart) and to me anyway, It looks like Brooke is taking him for most of what he's got [​IMG]
    On another note: Brooke is back on the market...maybe I stand a chance now[​IMG]

    Someone from Florida can correct me but I don't believe that Florida is a community property state.

    If Florida is not a community property state; I sure as hell would not give in to all of the requests she is making.

    Chad, from your post your obviously not a Gordon fan, but what the heck are you talking about!?[​IMG]
    The man has 4 Winston Cup Championships under his belt at the age of 30! That's something that neither Richard Petty or Dale Earnhardt did at that age. Plus, he constantly breaks records. If you don't like him, cool, but Gordon nay sayers never admit what is so obvious, that the man has talent, and was born to race.

    I just saw in the March 2002 issue of Readers Digest a real nice picture of the happy couple kissing.

    Oh, and I'm no NASCAR fan, but I think Tony Stewart was going to make lunchmeat of Gordon this year anyway. [​IMG]

    But the difference is that Tom Cruise pushed for his divorce, while Jeff Gordon's wife is the one doing the pushing.
    She's got big headlights. [​IMG]

    No doubt he is a good driver,thats not my trouble with him..it's his attitude,every loss he cant just sit back and say,"yeah,I messed up" it's always somebodies elses fault,"so and so got a bit too close and I caught their drift and it slowed me down and I was never able to recover"...what ever,I cannot stand people like that,nascar drivers or otherwise

    Michael, I don't anyone would mind it if you'd cropped Jeff Gordon out of these photos. [​IMG]

    I live in Connecticut. Do girls like that really exist? I thought they were just conceived on the computers at Playboy Enterprises and cut and pasted onto the pages of the magazine. In Connecticut, well, lets just say we don't see a whole hell of a lot of that kinda quality.[​IMG] [​IMG]
