Paint Scheme Grades-July 1, 2017

By David G. Firestone.

Brad Keselowski #2 Freightliner Ford Fusion-Blue and silver work well with the Penske template, and the car has a good look. It gets the A it deserves.

Austin Dillon #3 Dow/Kilz Chevy SS-Same scheme as Dow, same A- grade.

Kevin Harvick #4 Mobil 1 Ford Fusion-Same basic scheme as Mobil 1, same A grade.

Kasey Kahne #5 Microsoft Windows Chevy SS-Microsoft has a great shade of blue, and the car design is bold but not overdone. Its a great scheme! A

Clint Bowyer #14 Cars 3 Ford Fusion-Same scheme as #42, same B+ grade.

Kevin O’Connell #15 SBC Construction /Apollo Opening Roofing System Chevy SS-The American flag motif works well, the car looks good, no complaints. A

Alon Day #23 Earthwater Toyota Camry-Neon green and light blue does not look good on a black background. The only reason this scheme gets a passing grade is because it’s not over designed. D-

Paul Menard #27 Menard’s/Tarkett Chevy SS-The Tarkett color scheme works very well with the new Menard’s template, and the car has a great look. A

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

Boris Said #33 Chevy SS-New scheme for 2017,Same scheme as Hulu, same A grade.

Josh Bilicki #51 Marriott/Climate Fieldview Chevy SS-While the color scheme is decent, the car as a whole is seriously over designed, and the car has a terrible look. There is no way I can’t give this scheme an F.

Tommy Regan #55 Tools Chevy SS-The color scheme is great, and the simple, smooth look is worth an A.

Dale Earnhardt Jr. #88 Axalta/Fix Auto Collision Chevy SS-Same scheme as Axalta, same F grade.

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.
