New Wild Card Feature Creates Additional Spots in World Championship
The new Wild Card Challenge will send 4 Regional Series competitors to Las Vegas for the World Championship! At the end of the regional season, the bricklayers that post the top 4 adjusted brick counts will win a FREE ride to Vegas and chance at becoming the 2021 World’s Best Bricklayer!
To set the stage for the 2021 SPEC MIX BRICKLAYER 500 World Championship, SPEC MIX is announcing the addition of a Regional Series Wild Card system. Now, skilled masons that compete in the regional qualifying event, but don’t win the “Regional Champion” title, can still advance to Las Vegas by posting one of the top four wild card adjusted brick counts across North America.
In light of the COVID-19 pandemic, SPEC MIX® anticipates hosting 20 regional competitions, in comparison to 24 typically held each year. In addition to filling the 2021 championship roster with four additional teams, the wild card feature adds a great deal of excitement to the campaign. Not only does it open the door to bricklayers who narrowly missed their chance to battle in the World Championship, the added element allows the competition’s dedicated fan base to track the wild card race on the SMBL 500 website.
“Much like professional sports, the SPEC MIX BRICKLAYER 500 brings fun and entertainment to the masonry industry. Adding the wild card chase to the Regional Series raises its level of excitement while enticing new competitors to put their skills to the test and take a shot at becoming the next World Champ,” says Brian Carney, SPEC MIX Vice President.
Commonly referred to as the “Super Bowl of Masonry,” the SPEC MIX BRICKLAYER 500 World Championship is scheduled for January 20th, 2021 at the World of Concrete trade show in Las Vegas.
