Regan Smith #7 AIPAC Chevy SS-See above. A+
Chase Elliot #24 Sun Energy Chevy SS-Think they overdid this scheme just a bit? Wow! Like most J.J. Abrams films, it has too much flare. F
Paul Menard #27 Menard’s/Libman Chevy SS-I’ve said that Menard’s templates can be everything from great to awful depending on what color the hood sponsor has. In this case, the template looks good, because the green works very well. A+
Josh Wise #30 Toyota Camry-Not a bad look at all. A+
Brian Scott #44 Von’s Ford Fusion-Same scheme as Albertson’s, same A+ grade.
Brian Scott #44 Goody’s Ford Fusion-Get rid of the yellow scheme B+
AJ Allmendinger #47 Louisiana Hot Sauce Chevy SS-The shade of red really looks good, and the fame motif works well with a hot sauce brand. A+
AJ Allmendinger #47 Kroger/Coffee Mate/Butterfinger Chevy SS-Same as Kroger, same A+ grade.
Cole Whitt #98 Rinnai Ford Fusion-It’s a good scheme with a smooth look, and a great color scheme. A+
