Mario Landeros Named Best Bricklayer in North Texas
Dallas, TX – The best masons in North Texas and the surrounding region came together to test their skill, speed and stamina by battling to see who could build the biggest and best 26-foot-long brick wall in one hour while using superior craftsmanship. The winning team is determined by a judging panel that detract brick from the total number of bricks laid based on workmanship infractions. The event is one of several SPEC MIX BRICKLAYER 500® Regional Series competitions to be held across North America in 2020. The winner of each regional qualifies to compete in the 2021 World Championship at the World of Concrete expo in Las Vegas.
Eight teams of masons and tenders lined the arena at Best Block in Dallas, TX ready to prove they’re the best craftsmen in the region. Mason Mario Landeros and mason tender Aldolfo Gonzales Jr. with Artisan Masonry in Dallas, TX took home top honors with an adjusted brick count of 661. Landeros and Gonzales earned $750 for their hustle as well as a free trip to Las Vegas for the World Championship, $200 gift card from Ford Trucks, a Marshalltown tool bag, Stabila Level and the title, “North Texas’ Best Bricklayer.”
