Four Corners Materials and Waycor Materials Employees Win at New Mexico Truck Roadeo
August 24, 2015
The New Mexico Ready Mix Concrete & Aggregates Association held its 21st annual Truck Roadeo on Aug. 25 in the New Mexico Lobos parking lot. Four Corners Materials and Waycor Materials, both Oldcastle companies supplying quality sand, rock, ready mixed concrete and asphalt products to the New Mexico area, helped sponsor the event and participated in the competition. Mixer driver Wayne Lile, an employee of Four Corners Materials for 15 years, placed second and Waycor Materials mixer driver Roberto Delgado placed third in the competition.
Three different tests were administered during the Roadeo, including a written test, a pre-trip inspection conducted by the Highway Patrol, and a driving test that measured the driver’s skill in maneuvering, backing, turning, and stopping the mixer. Concrete placement and chute handling skills were also tested during the event.
Waycor Materials sales manager Jerry Alsup serves as president of the New Mexico Ready Mix Concrete & Aggregates Association and was in charge of organizing the event. “The roadeo was a huge success this year,” Alsup said. “We appreciate our sponsors, judges and volunteers who make the event possible. Congratulations to the 22 talented drivers who participated.”
