After a hectic week getting my computer back up to full speed, I present the final paint scheme grades for 2014…
First the 2015 Schemes
Clint Bowyer # 15 5-Hour Energy Toyota Camry-Same scheme as last year, same B+ grade.
Kyle Busch #18 M&M’s Toyota Camry-Same scheme as last year, same A+ grade.
Now we move on to the final paint scheme grades of 2014.
Reed Sorenson #36 Feed The Children/Dei Fratelli Tomatoes Chevy SS I like the general appearance, and the color scheme is really good for racing. The one thing that bugs me about this scheme is that for no apparent reason, the Dei Fratelli Tomatoes logo is bigger on one quarter panel than the other. It doesn’t look good small. I’ll give it a B+
Justin Allgaier #51 Brandt International Chevy SS I get the map motif of the scheme. The yellow on red would normally be a great color scheme, but this just looks like a jumbled up mess. I do like the flags at the bottom, and the Thai translation of “Professional Agriculture” is a nice touch. I’ll give it a B+
Brent Moffitt #66 X-8 Energy Gum Toyota Camry I like the color scheme, and the overall design is smooth and good, so I’ll give it an A+
Josh Wise #98 PPR98 Ford Fusion-Great color scheme, great smooth design, A+
Now we move on to the 2015 Paint Scheme Tracker, and while Clint Bowyer did release his old scheme from 2014, it still looks amazing on his 2015 Toyota.
