People assume it was this really intense, long-term relationship – but that’s not the case. The whole thing has been blown way out of proportion. It was in 2003 so Arie was really young. She was an Indiana girl and knew a lot about racing. She drank beer and hung with the boys. But Arie told me it was never a relationship. Like I said, I’ve been one of his best friends for ages and I’ve never even heard her name until now.
Sounds like it wasn't that big of a deal, after all. What do you think — if you were in Emily's shoes, would you be mad?
