Jeff Gordon released a statement Monday afternoon concerning the divorce papers filed by his wife, Brooke, this past week in a Florida court.
"As you are probably well aware, Brooke has filed for divorce. Being a personal matter, I hope that everybody will respect our privacy as we work through this difficult time.
"I also hope everybody will understand that it would be improper for me to discuss or comment on this matter publicly.
"I appreciate the support I've received from my family, friends and those in the racing community."
