After four months on the road and 20 tour stops across North America the 2015 SPEC MIX BRICKLAYER 500 Regional Series is officially complete and the “Road to Las Vegas” is paved for the 20 teams that won their qualifying competition. With the roster set for the 2016 World Championship event, which includes the 2015 returning Champion Fred Campbell and SPEC MIX TOP CRAFTSMAN Garrett Hood, plus a bricklayer from Australia, a total of 23 elite bricklayers and their respective mason tenders will be headed to Vegas to compete for the title: “World’s Best Bricklayer!”

The 14th Annual SPEC MIX BRICKLAYER 500 World Championship event will be held on Wednesday, February 3, 2016 at the World of Concrete/World of Masonry tradeshow in the Gold Lot of the Las Vegas Convention Center. With as many as 4,000 spectators in attendance and thousands of live webcast viewers tuned in to watch 23 world-class masons compete, the SPEC MIX BRICKLAYER 500 is the largest masonry competition in the construction industry. In a town where “cash is king” it’s only fitting that these masonry teams will compete for approximately $100,000 in cash and prizes, including a 2016 Ford F-250 XLT 4x4 Crew Cab truck.
