Willie Allen (born June 15, 1980 in Bon Aqua, Tennessee), is a stock car racing driver, currently driving the #05 Owens Corning Roofing/31-W Insulation Chevrolet Impala for Day Enterprise Racing in the NASCAR Nationwide Series.

Allen made his NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series debut in 2005 in the Kroger 200 at Martinsville Speedway where he finished 6th, driving for what is now Randy Moss Motorsports. He made just one more start in 2005 and only one the following season before signing with ThorSport Racing to replace Kerry Earnhardt in the #13 truck for the 2007 season. At the Mountain Dew 250 at Talladega Superspeedway, he matched his career-best result with a 6th-place finish. Allen finished 15th in the standings and won the Rookie of the Year award, however ThorSport elected not to retain him for the 2008 season, as Shelby Howard was signed to replace him.

For 2008, Allen was named driver of the #81 Chevrolet Silverado for the newly renamed Randy Moss Motorsports, formerly Morgan-Dollar Motorsports. His first race was July 19, 2008 at Kentucky Speedway in Sparta, KY. In July 2008, it was announced that the country music group Rascal Flatts would be the first sponsor for the #81 truck. After a few races, Allen parted ways with RMM. He spent 2009 driving part-time for K-Automotive Motorsports but not finishing a race. He signed to drive the #05 31-W Insulation/CertainTeed in the Nationwide Series in 2010.
