Racing careerEdit

Allen also raced in the ARCA Series, where he finished 10th in points in 1993.

Allen made his series debut in 1995 running nine races, in his own #65 Chevrolet. His first start came at the Milwaukee Mile, where he qualified 27th, but came home with a solid 15th-place finish. In the other eight starts, he would take on three more top-20 finishes, the best being a 13th at Indianapolis Raceway Park.

His best season came in 1996, where he made twenty of twenty-four races. In his return to Milwaukee, he finished tenth, his only career top-10, but had seven other top-20 finishes. However, Allen's big problem was DNFs. In his twenty starts, he did not finish eight of them.

After sponsor ONSAT left, Allen only made ten starts in 1997. His best finish was only a 15th at Miami, but he also earned his first career top-10 start. He started the Texas race in 7th position.

Allen would only make one start apiece in 1998 and 2000. In 1998, he drove the #82 Rhino Linings USA Chevy at Texas, where he started 35th and finished 28th due to a crash. In 2000, he ran at Homestead-Miami Speedway for Jim Rosenblum Racing, where he finished last on the field after transmission trouble.
