Trevor Bayne #6 Advocare Spark Ford Fusion-The cube design is a bit overdone, but I do like the color scheme. B-
Regan Smith #7 APC Donald “Dutch” Hoag Throwback Chevy SS-A great throwback to a legend. The attention to detail is great, and the car looks good as a whole. A
Denny Hamlin #11 SportClips Throwback Toyota Camry-Another great throwback. I like the attention to detail here, and the gold numbers. I really wish NASCAR would allow teams to have chrome numbers, but sadly, they don’t. That said, this is a great scheme that earns an A.
Tony Stewart #14 Coca Cola Throwback Chevy SS-If Tony had used proper numbering, and replaced the modern logos with classic logos, I would give this scheme an A, but the lack of attention to detail takes it down to an A-.
Greg Biffle #16 Ford Eco-Boost Ford Fusion-Same scheme as #17 Eco-Boost, same B+ grade.
Kyle Busch #18 Snickers Crispier Toyota Camry-Mediocre color scheme, and I like the design scheme on the sides, but why does there appear to be a Snickers wrapper at the top of the hood? It’s visually distracting, and it’s confusing. I’ll give it a B-.
Josh Wise #30 SBC Construction Chevy SS-It’s a simple design with a smooth look and a great color scheme. A
Josh Wise #30 Vision RV Chevy SS-See above. A
Joey Gase #32 Diesel Sales/Sparkz Ford Fusion-See above. A
Boris Said #32 Genesee Beer Ford Fusion-Same scheme as last year, same A grade.
Jimmie Johnson #48 Lowes Earnhardt Throwback Chevy SS-I LOVE THIS SCHEME! The attention to detail in the lettering and numbers works well, and the car as a whole is great. I give it an A.
Alex Kennedy #55 Chevy SS-Same scheme as Carport Empire, same A grade.
Matt DiBenedetto #83 EJ Wade Construction Toyota Camry-The cutting edge motif doesn’t work with the white and orange, even though I like the color scheme. It had potential for an A scheme, but the poor execution takes it down to a B-.
Matt DiBenedetto #83 Mass Markets Toyota Camry-The only thing keeping this scheme above a D grade is the color scheme. Other than that, I can’t say anything good on this scheme. The design is over done and horrible. I’ll be generous and give it a C-.
