Regan Smith #7 Nikko/Thomas the Train Chevy SS-The shade of blue looks really good, and the red stripe across the bottom looks good too. I also like the sparks near the wheel well. A
Tony Stewart #14 Mobil 1/Nature’s Bakery Chevy SS-The brownie motif looks really good as a design, and the color scheme is great. I give it an A.
Kyle Busch #18 M&M’s Halloween Toyota Camry-Same scheme as last year, same A grade.
David Ragan #23 Life With Cancer Toyota Camry-First off, I like the fact that a cancer scheme isn’t using a general color, since Pinktober is just around the corner. Second, while I like the color scheme, the design scheme needs work on the sides. I think the sides are overdone. It averages out to a B-, with no penalties for using pink.
AJ Allmendinger #47 Bush’s Chili Beans Chevy SS-Same scheme as last year, same A grade.
Cole Whitt #98 Standard Plumbing Supply Chevy SS-Black works well as a background for a race car, red and white work as secondary colors, and this smooth and simple design scheme works very well. A
Ryan Reed #99 Lilly Diabetes Ford Fusion-The color scheme is good, but the design is a bit too much. It’s not bad, just over done. I’ll give it a C+.
