Jamie McMurray #1 Credit One Chevy SS-Too many designs going on at once. It’s just an awful mess. F
Jamie McMurray #1 McDonalds/Cessna Chevy SS– A major downgrade from last year’s amazing fade. The two designs just don’t work that well together, and the car looks like a jumbled mess. Still, the color schemes are really good, so I’ll give it a B-
Regan Smith #7 Golden Corral/Niko Toy State Chevy SS-See above, but without the color scheme bonus. F
David Ragan #23 Dr. Pepper Toyota Camry-Not bad, but the side design is a tad over done for my taste. Still, it’s worth a B+.
Robert Richardson #26 Stalk It Toyota Camry-It’s a bold look with a really good color scheme that isn’t overdone. In my book, that earns an A+.
Josh Wise #30 Toyota Camry-Nothing to complain about here! A+
Bobby Labonte #32 C&J Energy Services Ford Fusion-Same scheme as last year, same F grade.
David Gilliland #35 Ford Fusion-Nothing to complain about here! A+
Landon Cassill #38 Florida Lottery Ford Fusion-Same scheme as last year, same C+ grade.
Michael McDowell #59 Thrivent Financial Chevy SS– Same scheme as #95, same B+ grade.
Martin Truex Jr. #78 Auto Owner’s Insurance Chevy SS-The vertical fade look is great, and the shades of blue look good. The numbers look really good here too. A+
Michael Waltrip #83 Maxwell House Toyota Camry-Same scheme as last year, same A+ grade.
Matt DiBenedetto #93 Dustless Blasting Toyota Camry-Same scheme as last year, same B– grade.
Cole Whitt #98 Premium Motorsports RTIC Coolers Toyota Camry-A smooth look with a really good color scheme will always earn an A+.
