Known as the Super Bowl of Masonry, it’s the only event that that answers the question: “Who is the World’s Best Bricklayer?” Celebrating its 18the annual season, the SPEC MIX BRICKLAYER 500® competition is the World of Concrete/World of Masonry’s most exciting attraction you don’t want to miss!
With over $125,000 in cash and prizes on the line including a FORD F-250 4x4 truck and a Roxor Off-Road Utility Vehicle, you’ll witness 28 teams of bricklayers and their mason tenders from around the world battle for 60-minutes to become the 2020 World Champion. Each team puts their skill,speed and stamina to the test by building a 26 foot 8 inch, double wythe brick wall. Judged by over 30 highly qualified masonry industry experts who follow a 10-point system for workmanship, a team’s final brick count may be adjusted down if judges detect workmanship infractions in the construction of the wall.
In the end, the duo who puts down the most bricks in one hour with the fewest quality craftsmanship deductions wins the event and the keys to shiny new truck. The second most coveted prize is the SPEC MIX TOP CRAFTSMAN, which is awarded to the bricklayer that lays over 500 brick with zero point deductions making it the “most sellable wall” and worthy of the Roxor Off-Road Utility Vehicle valued at $25,000. Be there to witness the crowning of the 2020 World Champion!
