Austin Dillon #3 Okuma Chevy SS-It’s the same basic scheme as AAA, but the color change doesn’t do anything to improve or detract from the D+ grade, so it stays a D+.
Joey Logano #22 Duralast Brakes Ford Fusion-I like this design, the black checkered pattern works very well. The yellow is understated, and works well, and the modified Penske template works very well. It’s a solid A scheme.
Paul Menard #27 Menard’s/Duracell Chevy SS-Black and gold works well for the new Menard’s template. This scheme works well too. It’s worth an A.
Ryan Newman #31 Kalahari Resorts Chevy SS-Same scheme as last year, same C- grade.
Ryan Newman #31 Chevrolet Chevy SS-Metallic gold is an underused color on race cars, and the smooth look and great color scheme create an A scheme.
Landon Cassill #34 FR8 Auctions Ford Fusion-Same scheme as last year, same D+ grade.
Timmy Hill #51 Go Parts Chevy SS-Same basic scheme as the black Spoonful, same A grade.
Cole Whitt #72 Bad Boy Mowers Chevy SS-Bad number design, bad design scheme, decent design scheme. All in all, it’s worth an F.
Corey LaJoie #83 RMC Events Toyota Camry-The blue is a little light for my tastes, but the color as a whole scheme isn’t terrible, and the designs scheme is decent. So I’ll give it a B+.
