Texaco announced an eight-year deal to become a U.S. Olympic sponsor through the 2004 Games, according to Jay Baltezore of the SALT LAKE TRIBUNE. The deal is "said to be worth" more than $80M in cash and products, including gasoline, motor oil, diesel fuel and coolants under the Texaco and Havoline brand names. Texaco's sponsorship also includes a connection to the teams for the 2002 Paralympic Winter Games and the 2003 U.S. Pan American Games (SALT LAKE TRIBUNE, 9/17). In UT, Lisa Riley Roche notes that "more than half" of Texaco's contribution to the USOC "will be cash" (DESERET NEWS, 9/17).
