Paint Scheme Grades-August 19, 2017

By David G. Firestone.

Austin Dillon #3 Dow Automotive Magma Chevy SS-The look is good, it’s bold and subtle, and it earns an A.

Trevor Bayne #6 Roush Performance/Hines Park Ford Fusion-Same scheme as Roush Performance, Same A grade.

Danica Patrick #10 Colorado State University One Cure Chevy SS-Colorado State doesn’t have a good color scheme, but this scheme salvages it. I don’t like the paw motif though, so, all things considered, I’ll give it a B+.

Ryan Blaney #21 Motorcraft/SKF Ford Fusion-Same scheme as Motorcraft, Same A grade.

Joey Logano #22 Shell/Pennzoil Throwback Ford Fusion-While this scheme omits the red stripes, it’s still pretty faithful, and it’s a good look. A

Corey LaJoie #23 JAS Trucking Toyota Camry-The scheme looks just as good with black removed as it did with the white removed. A

Corey LaJoie #23 Dr. Pepper Throwback Toyota Camry-Another faithful throwback that looks really good. It’s solidly done, and it looks good. Side note, Miller throwbacks seem to be popular this year. A

Chris Buescher #37 Bush’s Grilling Beans Chevy SS-Same scheme as last year, Same A grade.

Jimmie Johnson #48 Lowe’s/Jimmie Johnson Foundation Chevy SS-It’s a better look for this year’s JJF car. The color scheme works, and the design is really good. I’ll give it the A it deserves.

BJ McLeod #51 Corrigan Oil Chevy SS-Same scheme as #15, Same A grade.

Derrike Cope #55 Mane N Tall/Straight Arrow Chevy SS-While not fully faithful to the original, it’s still a good look, with a nice fade. A

Cole Whitt #72 Bad Boy Mowers Chevy SS-A smooth simple look with a good color scheme will always earn an A.

Brent Moffitt #83 Northwestern Technological Institute Toyota Camry-A smooth simple look with a good color scheme will always earn an A.

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.
