Paint Scheme Grades-October 15, 2016

By David G. Firestone

Regan Smith #7 Fire Alarm Services Pink Chevy SS-Pinkwashing is an automatic F.

Greg Biffle #16 Ford Eco-Boost Pink Ford Fusion-Pinkwashing is an automatic F.

Greg Biffle #16 FordPass Ford Fusion-The color scheme is good, and the curved fade design is bold, but t’s a good look. I give it an A.

Chris Buescher #34 Love’s Travel Stops/Roller Bites Ford Fusion-Same basic scheme as Love’s Travel Stops, same A grade.

Michael Annett #46 Northland Oil Chevy SS-The white front contrasts with the rest of the scheme. If the white was red, it would work better. The white looks forced and awkward. Still, the color scheme is good aside from that, and the design scheme looks decent, so I’ll give it a B+.

Matt DiBenedetto #83 Scorpyd Toyota Camry-The design is horrid. The curves look terrible, and there are too many of them. While they have a good color scheme, they used it wrong. The background color should be red, but it’s white. All things considered, it earns a D-.

Alex Bowman #88 Axalta/Hendrick Auto Group Chevy SS-Same basic scheme as Axalta, same A grade.

Alex Bowman #88 Mountain Dew Camo Chevy SS-Take a bad scheme, add hunting camouflage, and you have an F worth scheme for sure.

Dale Earnhardt Jr. #88 Axalta/University of Michigan Chevy SS-The Michigan scheme looks good, and the car works well as a result. A

Michael McDowell #95 Thrivent Builds Chevy SS-The curve design works, it isn’t overdone, and the denim elements work well too. I give it an A.
