Paint Scheme Grades-January 14, 2017

By David G. Firestone

Kasey Kahne #5 UniFrst Chevy SS-Same scheme as last year, same A grade.

Trevor Bayne #6 Liberty National Ford Fusion-The color scheme is a good choice, but I don’t like the dual stripes, and the cut out around the numbers looks odd. It’s still not a bad scheme, and all things considered, I give it a B-.

Danica Patrick #10 Nature’s Bakery Ford Fusion-The same basic scheme as last year, which is a good scheme to begin with, has been improved by removing the black stripe across the bottom. I give it an A.

Danica Patrick #10 Code 3 Associates Ford Fusion-The color scheme is good, and I like the basic design. It’s simple, and looks good. I give it an A.

Clint Bowyer #14 Mobil 1 Ford Fusion-I like the new Mobil 1 scheme, it has a good color scheme, and the design scheme looks great. It earns an A.

Ricky Stenhouse Jr. #17 Sunny D Ford Fusion-Same scheme as last year, same F grade.

Rickey Stenhouse Jr. #17 Fastenal Ford Fusion-Reversing the color scheme can be hit or miss, and this new Fastenal scheme is a hit. The scheme looks good, and it earns an A.

Joey Gase #23 Best Furnishing Toyota Camry-It’s a decent color scheme, but an over done, needlessly bad design scheme kills it. It just doesn’t look good. If the blue were a little darker, I could give it a D-, but with the light blue, it earns an F.

Chase Elliott #24 Sun Energy Chevy SS-Same scheme as last year, same F grade.

Kurt Busch #41 Mobil 1 Ford Fusion-The Mobil 1 scheme looks good this year, and while I’m not a fan of the green, it still is a solid A scheme.

I'm just a normal guy who collects race-worn driver suits, helmets, sheet metal, and other race-worn items. I will use this blog to help collectors, and race fans alike understand the various aspects of driver suits and helmets, and commentate on paint schemes.
