Mike McMurray and Kenyon Taylor of Concrete Mike LLC have been named Season 1 winners of Concrete Combat, Sakrete’s concrete-based reality TV competition, after a grueling live showdown at World of Concrete 2022 in Las Vegas on Jan. 20.
The season finale pitted McMurray and Taylor against Mike Hill and Dave Rose of Rose & Son Concrete in a head-to-head challenge in front of a live audience of concrete professionals and fans. Season 1 judges Dirk Tharpe, Sakrete concrete expert, and Mike Day of Day’s Concrete Floors were joined by special guest judge Dave Endres of Oldcastle APG to oversee the competition and make the tough decision about who would be dubbed Concrete Combat champions. Reality show host Brittany Goodwin presided over the competition.
The battle ended with the closest-ever judging decision, coming down to a few minor points of skill, knowledge and speed that put team Concrete Mike over the top.
“World of Concrete is the biggest concrete event of the year, so filming the live finale of the biggest concrete competition series at the tradeshow was a must,” said Dave Jackson, Senior Brand Manager for Sakrete. “Both of our finalists put up a great fight under some seriously tough conditions, and we’re proud to congratulate the Concrete Mike team on their win. Mike and Kenyon have truly cemented their names in history,” said Jackson.
