Tennessee Mason Fred Campbell Named World’s Best Bricklayer

Las Vegas, NV— Thousands of spectators gathered in the Bronze Lot at the Las Vegas Convention, and thousands more watched live online, as the 18th annual SPEC MIX BRICKLAYER 500® World Championship (See Photos) took center stage at the World of Concrete expo. It’s a battle of skill, speed and stamina as masons and tenders from across North America put their reputations on the line for a chance to win serious prizes. The concept is simple, each team has one hour to build a 26-foot-long brick wall as large as they can with as few errors as possible.

Mason Fred Campbell and mason tender Tony Shelton of Creative Masonry in Greeneville, TN took home top honors, claiming the title, “World’s Best Bricklayer.” With a brick count of 756 . Campbell is now the proud owner of a new Ford F-250 XLT 4×4 truck, an Essick Pro 12 mortar mixer plus an addition $10,000 in cash and prizes.

This marks the third time Fred Campbell has won the World Championship title, the first mason to claim that honor. The 47-year-old mason was excited to win again saying, “It’s great to be back on the podium. We put in a lot of work this year to make sure we came out on top.”

Mason Darian Douthit of Providence Masonry of Miami, OK took home the title SPEC MIX TOP CRAFTSMAN®, which goes to the mason whose wall was voted “most sellable,” by a 30-judge panel. For this honor Douthit is taking home a ROXOR Off-Road side-by-side sport utility vehicle.

Douthit is a repeat SPEC MIX TOP CRAFTSMAN winner, and took top honors with 550 qualifying brick laid with no deductions. “My goal was to take home the ROXOR, I’m going up against such tough competitors, it’s great to be considered one of the best.”

Standing beside first place and craftsman in the winners’ circle, Second place honors went to last year’s World Champion, Mario Alves and tender Michael Alves of A&M Masonry in Hamilton, ON. Alves laid 735 brick to win $4,000 and over $1,500 in sponsor prizes.

Commonly referred to as the “Super Bowl of Masonry,” the bricklaying battle took place on Wednesday, Feb. 5th in the heart of the Masonry Madness® Day arena at the World of Concrete trade show in Las Vegas.
Before a bricklayer is eligible to compete in the SPEC MIX BRICKLAYER 500® World Championship, they must first qualify by winning one of 24 Regional Series competitions held across North America. This earns them a shot at taking down the returning World Champion or SPEC MIX TOP CRAFTSMAN® title holders.

Four additional events were held in the Bronze Lot during Masonry Madness Day, rounding out 6 hours of masonry competitions. The MCAA’s Masonry Skills Challenge, MCAA’s Fastest Trowel on the Block, the SPEC MIX TOUGHEST TENDER and the JR. SPEC MIX BRICKLAYER 500.
