Jamie McMurray #1 Cessna Chevy SS-Same scheme as last year, same B+ grade.
Brad Keselowski #2 SKF Ford Fusion–Same scheme as last year, same A grade.
Ty Dillon #13 Twisted Tea Chevy SS-Same scheme as last year, same A grade.
Joey Logano #22 Pennzoil Ford Fusion–It’s the same basic scheme from last year, with some light changes in the white stripes. It still looks good, and I give it an A.
Joey Gase #23 Schluter Systems Toyota Camry-The basic scheme, which is horrible, returns, but the new stripes add nothing, and the car is still a D- scheme.
Joey Gase #23 Dr. Pepper Toyota Camry– The new side stripes don’t look good at all, and they take an A scheme down to a B+.
Ryan Newman #31 Granger Chevy SS-Red as a primary color works, and the black stripe on the bottom works well. It’s a great scheme, and earns an A.
Matt DiBenedetto #32 EJ Wade Foundation Ford Fusion-It’s not a great color scheme, and the ribbon design doesn’t look good. It’s a true F scheme.
Chris Buescher #37 Kroger Checklist Chevy SS-Same scheme as Kroger same B+ grade.
Kurt Busch #41 Mobil 1 Annual Protection Chevy SS-Same scheme as other SHR Mobil 1 schemes, but with gold trim, same A grade.
Cole Whitt #72 Florida Lottery Ford Fusion-The black doesn’t work at all with the orange and teal color scheme, and the scheme looks forced. The only thing I like about this scheme is the door numbers. I’ll give it a D-.
Corey LaJoie #83 Dustless Blasting Toyota Camry-Same scheme as last year, same B- grade.
