Jensen made one attempt in the NASCAR Pro Series East (now ARCA Series East), as he unfortunately finished in last place out of the 26-car field at Virginia International Raceway in 2013, dropping out as a result of transmission failure.

The only Danish driver thus far to start in the Cup Series drove his way to a 12th-place result in his lone race at Infineon Raceway (now Sonoma Raceway) in 2010, finishing on the lead lap in the process. However, Magnussen is known as a legend in sports car racing, with four class victories in the 24 Hours of Le Mans and a class victory in the 24 Hours of Daytona, to go along with a pair of championships in the American Le Mans Series (2008 and 2013) and in the IMSA SportsCar Championship (2018 and 2019).
