Sakrete, a division of Oldcastle APG, will hold the Season 1 finale of their first-ever concrete competition series, Concrete Combat, in a final battle of concrete skill at the World of Concrete, Thursday, January 20th at 10:30 a.m. at the Las Vegas Convention Center. Live at Sakrete Booth C4450, two teams will face off doing concrete repairs in a race against the clock to take the title. This will be a full-scale video production featuring the serie’s biggest challenge yet . . . all filmed for release to the world after WOC.

Each episode of Concrete Combat pits two teams of professional contractors against each other in a head-to-head concrete construction or repair challenge designed to test concrete know-how in a wide variety of scenarios.
“Concrete Combat was conceived as a test of skill, first and foremost,” said Dave Jackson, Senior Brand Manager for Sakrete. “Though we certainly want viewers to appreciate what Sakrete products can do, it’s really all about recognizing and paying respect to the skill and expertise that our competitors bring to the table.”
Concrete Combat’s Season 1 features eight teams from across the U.S. competing at the Sakrete Concrete Coliseum in a single-elimination showdown—win and advance, lose and go home.
Challenges included pouring slabs, repairing damaged concrete, setting fence posts and more. All of the tools and materials are provided to the contestants, but they have no idea what challenge they’re facing until it’s revealed at the beginning of each episode.
“Some competitors would get lucky with projects that they’re very familiar with and others will find themselves in completely new territory—the ultimate test of concrete mastery,” said Jackson.
Hosted by Brittany Goodwin (If You’re Gone, The Perfect Race), each competition in the series is judged by concrete veterans Mike Day, a widely-viewed concrete expert on YouTube and the owner of Day’s Concrete Floors in Monmouth, ME and Dirk Tharpe, Sakrete’s resident concrete expert. A special guest judge joins Mike and Dirk every episode to lend their own project-specific expertise to the panel.
