Paint Scheme Grades-September 24, 2016

By David G. Firestone

Austin Dillon #3 Dow/Hefty Energy Bag Chevy SS-Same basic scheme as Dow, same B+ grade.

Austin Dillon #3 Pumpkin Spice Cheerios Chevy SS-The whole motif looks good, though I think that the orange is too light. Still, it’s worth a B+.

Regan Smith #7 Citizen Solider Film Chevy SS-Camoflague rarely works well on race cars, and the use of white and red camouflage just looks awful and earns an F.

Landon Cassill #38 The Pete Store Ford Fusion-Reversing colors can be hit or miss, and this is a hit. Red is always a solid race car color, and the black stripe looks good. It earns an A.

Brian Scott #44 Jewel-Osco/Ritz/Triscut Ford Fusion-Same basic scheme as Dow, same A grade.

AJ Allmendinger #47 Kroger’s/DiGiorno’s/Scott Chevy SS-Same basic scheme as Kroger’s, same A grade.

Matt DiBenedetto #83 NASCAR Heat Evolution Toyota Camry-Orange and black can be a decent scheme, but this orange is too dark. The cutting edge designs aren’t working well either. The black background looks good though, so averaging out, it earns a D.

Michael McDowell #95 Rat Rods Chevy SS-Rusted light blue is a unique look, and this scheme is a great scheme! It looks good and earns an A.
