More NASCAR cell phone warring? What will NASCAR and Sprint have to say about this:

By Mike Mulhern

    Another round of cell phone wars? That may be in the offering, with Roger Penske's announcement that he now has a Verizon Wireless sponsorship to field a full-season entry in the 2009 NASCAR Nationwide Series with Justin Allgaier, the 2008 ARCA champion.

   Allgaier made four Nationwide Series starts for Penske Racing in 2008 after joining the team in late September. The 22-year-old driver from Riverton, Illinois is looking to lead the team to a breakout season, beginning next month in Daytona.

   Penske Racing will also continue its participation in the NASCAR Cup Series with the No. 12 Penske Dodge Charger driven by David Stremme. He will be joined by teammates Kurt Busch in the No. 2 Miller Lite Dodge Charger and Sam Hornish Jr., driving the No. 77 Mobil 1 Dodge Charger in the three-car effort.
   The No. 12 Cup Series team also retains Roy McCauley as its crew chief.

   “Penske Racing enjoyed a productive, winning relationship with Alltel over the last decade,” Penske said. "We look forward to building on that solid foundation and in sharing many future successes with our new partner Verizon Wireless."
   Verizon Wireless serves 83.7 million customers. It is headquartered in Basking Ridge, N.J., with 85,000 employees nationwide. Verizon Wireless is a joint venture of Verizon Communications (NYSE: VZ) and Vodafone (NYSE and LSE: VOD).
