Paint Scheme Grades-May 6, 2017

By David G. Firestone

Jamie McMurray #1 Bass Pro Shops/National Wild Turkey Federation Chevy SS-Camoflague doesn’t work on a race car, and the black and orange motif doesn’t work well here either. It’s just not a good scheme. F

Kasey Kahne #5 Drive To End Hunger Chevy SS-Same scheme as last year, same A grade.

Danica Patrick #10 Mobil 1 Chevy SS-Same scheme as #41, same A grade.

Danica Patrick #10 Code 3 Associates Chevy SS-Blue, silver, and white can work very well, and the smooth design and great look give this car an A grade

Danica Patrick #10 Wonder Woman Chevy SS-I loves me a good fade, and red to white is a good fade. The Wonder Woman motif looks good too, and this is an A scheme all around.

Ricky Stenhouse Jr. #17 Fifth-Third Bank Ford Fusion-Same scheme as last year, same A grade.

Paul Menard #27 Menard’s/Rockstar Chevy SS-Black works very well with any Menard’s template, especially this one. Nothing wrong with this one! A

Ryan Newman #31 Okuma Chevy SS-Same scheme as #3, same A grade.

Matt DiBenedetto #32 EJ Wade Ford Fusion-Another good fade this week! The white to black fade is a good look, and this is very well executed. A

Jeffery Earnhardt #33 Towne Bank Chevy SS-Same scheme as Starter, same A grade.

Landon Cassill #34 The Pete Store Ford Fusion-Same scheme as 2016#38, same A grade.

Landon Cassill #34 CSX Play It Safe Ford Fusion-Same scheme as last year, same A grade.

Landon Cassill #34 Loves/Winstar Ford Fusion-Same scheme as Love’s Truck Stops, same A grade.

Timmy Hill #51 SleepFresh Chevy SS-Sometimes changing the primary color of a paint scheme can backfire, just not here. This is a good look, and the black works very well with the rest of the scheme. A

Cole Whitt #72 Chevy SS-The plain black works well with the numbers, and this is the best that the #72 has ever looked. A

Erik Jones #77 Gamestop Toyota Camry-The black motif with the blue circle works very well, it’s a bold look that isn’t overdone. I like this scheme a lot. A

Corey LaJoie #83 EJ Wade Toyota Camry-It’s amazing what a small change can do. Replacing the cutting edge design from last year, with the stripe design takes the paint scheme up to an A. This is a nice looking scheme.
