Here at Wetpaint Entertainment, we know our readers are an awesome, diverse bunch. But we had no idea that some of you are into IndyCar racing. Not only did one of you go to the recent IndyCar event at Mid-Ohio Sportscar course attended by Arie Luyendyk, Sr. last weekend, you walked away with some killer scoop!

Apparently, everywhere Arie Sr. goes these days, he gets asked about his famous son, Bachelorette heartthrob Arie Luyendyk, Jr. And — with rumors swirling that Arie Jr. (should we call him AJ like in The Sopranos?) is in the running to be the next Bachelor, you can bet that’s the question his dad gets the most.

According to our tipster, Arie Sr. was overheard talking about Arie Jr.’s possible return to ABC at last weekend’s event. “I heard him say Arie is definitely interested in being the next Bachelor,” our tipster says. “He said if they ask him, he’d be thrilled.”

“People were joking around with his dad, asking if Arie’s really done sewing his wild oats and his dad said absolutely, those days are over. His dad said doing The Bachelorette really changed him, which I thought was so adorable,” the tipster continues. “Apparently, Arie wants to meet the right girl and settle down. His dad said he was ready.”

With his charm and sex appeal, we think he’d make a killer Bachelor. Plus, he's charming and hilarious — check out The Bachelorette outtake footage below!
