I know a lot of you have been asking if I will be attending the NHRA races this year to work on Alexis’ funny car. Its with an incredible amount of sadness to let you know Alexis and I have decided to end our marriage. We spent close to seven amazing years together. Working on her race car for five of those years was one of the highlights of my life. Also a highlight was trying my best to be a good dad to her daughter. Something that will leave a huge hole in my heart forever. Unfortunately at the end of the day our lives were just headed in different directions. Creating a distance that was insurmountable. I wish her the absolute best in her racing and life. I hope you can respect our privacy in this tough time. Thank you. #jessejames
