After a spell in Champ Car, AJ switched to NASCAR in 2007 whilst at his peak in Champcars, having taken five wins and a third place in the Championship despite moving teams half-way through the season. Allmendinger has continued in the discipline ever since then, but in 2013, dovetailed that with races in the IRL. AJ has also raced in sportscars on occasion, and won the 2012 Daytona 24 Hours race. Allmendinger also won the Barber Dodge Series in 2002 and the Toyota Atlantic Series in 2003 and there remains a feeling that, if he wanted to, that had Allmendinger stayed in single-seaters, he would be a multiple champion by now.
