The 2019 SPEC MIX BRICKLAYER 500® Louisiana Regional Series is back! Teams of brick masons and tenders will battle for the chance to head to Las Vegas to compete in the SPEC MIX BRICKLAYER 500 World Championship next February at the World of Concrete. This is one of 24 being held across North America. The qualifying national competitors get a crack at winning over $125,000 in cash and prizes, including a Ford F250 XLT 4X4 truck and John Deere Gator.
Last year’s regional event drew nine teams of highly skilled bricklayers. Their mission was to build a wall as big as they can in one hour. The mason who lays the most brick with the least mistakes wins. Jose Perez and Juan Perez celebrated with a brick count of 640, and no deductions. For their efforts, Perez and Perez receive $400, a trip to Las Vegas and the title “Louisiana’s Best Bricklayer.” Jose Perez also took the title, SPEC MIX TOP CRAFTMAN, which goes to the mason with the “most sellable wall,” and earned an extra $200.
2nd place went to mason Brian Strider and his mason tender Trey Morvant of Gator Masonry in Waggaman, LA with a brick count of 535 earning them a prize of $350. Third place went to mason Simon Cruz and his mason tender David Santiago of Gator Masonry, Waggaman, LA who received $300.
