After years of dominating the sport, Dario Franchitti has decided to walk away from competitive racing for good!
Ashley Judd's hubby was involved in a pretty bad accident last month at the Grand Prix in Houston, and he was lucky to walk away with only a broken right ankle, a concussion, and two fractured vertebrae.
However, the incident was still enough to convince him to hang up his helmet and retire.
Dario made the announcement on Twitter, and wrote:
Finally some GOOD news coming from the celebrity love line!
Ashley Judd has decided to get back together with her estranged car racing hubby Dario Franchitti.
The Divergent actress mysteriously separated from her three-time Indy 500 winning husband wayyyyy back in January, so why the change of heart all these months later??
The flame started to reignite when Dario nearly died in a terrible accident in the Grand Prix of Houston on October 6. While the champion thankfully walked away with only a broken right ankle, a concussion, and two fractured vertebrae, the INSANE accident just might've healed his marriage.
A source revealed:
We're getting so beyond pumped for Divergent! We're picking out our fave faction as we speak.
And after the VMAs got our taste buds tingling with a preview, we've been itching for more ever since!
More is exactly what we're getting as the film has released ANOTHER preview of the flick along with something very, very special.
This time around, interviews with the cast and behind the scenes footage are all ours to watch!
Shailene Woodley, Ashley Judd, and Kate Winslet give us the inside scoop about what we can expect from this film that's about to blow up!
Ch-ch-check it out (above)!
Meet the Priors!
We know all you Divergent fans have been waiting a damn long time to get a glimpse of the cast together, and now we have it for you.
We already knew WHO had been cast in the roles of the Prior family, but there's nothing like seeing them all together!
Ansel Elgort, who is playing Caleb, was oh-so generous enough to share this private, behind-the-scenes pic with us of his new onscreen family!
Pictured with him is Tony Goldwyn (Andrew), Ashley Judd (Natalie), and Shailene Woodley (Tris). And let us tell you, this group could not be a better looking family!
And sure, Ansel and Shailene might make a cute brother and sister combo here, but this pic is also proving they'll later make good-looking luvahs in The Fault In Our Stars.
All these wonderful teasers have us craving the first trailer! And don't even get us started on how pumped we are for the March 21, 2014 release date!

We barely believe it!
Ashley Judd went from the foot of the Congressional steps to scoring a major role in Divergent in just a few short days!!
The film began shooting earlier this week, but somehow the Double Jeopardy star still squeezed her way into the cast at the last minute and will play Shailene Woodley's mama!!!
Mrz. Judd, who was recently targeted by Mitch McConnell's nasty
Whoa! We're not sure how Mother Jones got these candid recordings of Mitch McConnell and his staff, but one thing is clear- they were NOT planning to fight fair against Ashley Judd!
The Double Jeopardy star, who was briefly considering running against the Kentucky Senator, was the target of what's called an "opposition research" meeting- basically, what used to be called digging up dirt and slinging mud!
In the recording, McConnell's staff reads excerpts from Ashley's memoir and listen to recordings of her speaking, trying to find every little thing she's ever done wrong they can use against her.
At one point, they listen to her talk about her religious views, in which she says:
And we were sooo looking forward to seeing her in cleavage-flaunting power suits, too!
Ashley Judd broke the hearts of just about everyone in Kentucky this afternoon as she announced she will not be running for U.S. Senate!
The 44-year-old actress delivered the disappointing news via Twitter, promising that she'd continue to fight the good fight, but that right now wasn't the right time for her to make her run.
