Paint Scheme Grades-November 4, 2017

By David G. Firestone

First another 2018 scheme has been released.

Martin Truex Jr. #78 Auto Owner’s Insurance Toyota CamryNo change. A

Now on to the 2017 schemes.

Jamie McMurray #1 Cessna/Bomasada Chevy SS-Same scheme as Cessna, same B+ grade.

Kevin Harvick #4 Busch NA Chevy SS-While I normally like the Busch forest motif, the red on the rear is visually distracting, and clashes with the rest of the design. It takes the design from an A scheme down to a B+.

Trevor Bayne #6 Ford Eco-Boost Ford Fusion-Pinkwashing is an automatic F.

Ricky Stenhouse Jr. #17 Fifth-Third Back Ford Fusion-Pinkwashing is an automatic F.

Matt DiBenedetto #32 Corvette Parts Ford Fusion-Pinkwashing is an automatic F.

Kurt Busch #41 State Water Heaters Chevy SS-Same scheme as last year, same B+ grade.

BJ McLeod #51 Chevy SS-Same scheme as Donnie Neuenberger Foundation, same B+ grade.

Gray Gaulding #83 Autism Speaks Toyota Camry-It’s a good looking car, with a great color scheme. It works well, and earns an A.

Dale Earnhardt Jr. #88 Nationwide Grey Ghost Chevy SS– Same scheme as last year, same A 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.
