|Court Docs Unsealed in NASCAR Chief's Divorce
|CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) -- Court documents reveal new details about a bitter divorce involving the head of NASCAR.
Court records unsealed Wednesday show NASCAR chief executive Brian France and his former wife fought over money and how much time he spent with their two children.
France's lawyers have fought for years to keep the details of his 2008 divorce from Megan France confidential. France married the Charlotte woman twice and they divorced twice.
France says in an email that his ex-wife spent a staggering amount of money, including $120,000 on her sister's funeral. She says he spent little time with their children.
According to statements in open court, the couple's 2008 separation agreement included paying Megan France $9 million, alimony of $32,000 a month for 10 years and $10,000 a month in child support.
