‘The Bachelorette’: Arie Luyendyk Jr. takes Jef Holm to the track

Mrs. Carter: What better way to relax after a breakup?

Only a matter of hours after talking about he and Jef Holm relaxing at the driving range, Emily Maynard’s former “Bachelorette” runner-up Arie Luyendyk Jr. is now taking the man she actually picked on the show somewhere else to kick back and try and take his mind off of things. So where did the two end up going? Let’s just say that it is somewhere Arie knows rather well, and somewhere that he turned down an opportunity to be in the running for “The Bachelor” in order to get back to.

In a new post on his Sulia page, here is what Arie had to say about taking his pal deep into the world of racing:

Hit the track tonight with Jef, whenever I┬ádrive the wheels off of something I never have a care in the world. In life and in racing you don’t have to look behind you if you’re going fast enough. #RacersTherapy #ThinkAboutIt”

Jef has actually been in Arie’s Arizona neighborhood to also spend time with his family and his new niece, and seems to be enjoying a break from the spotlight that may in his mind become somewhat permanent. Throughout this past season of the show, he never seemed to be someone particularly interested in the celebrity aspect of things, and he also explained during one conference call that he really could not see himself doing much reality TV when everything was officially said and done. (Of course, he also was saying this with the knowledge that Emily had chosen him at the end of the season.)

What do you think about Arie and Jef using this venue to relax a little bit given everything they have been through lately? (Remember, Arie’s also been in the headlines for kissing for “Bachelor” star Courtney Robertson.) Be sure to share some of your thoughts below!
