Paint Scheme Grades-February 24, 2018

By David G. Firestone

Jamie McMurray #1 McDonald’s/Cessna Chevy Camaro-Replacing blue with black works well, and this scheme works well. This is a great looking scheme. A

Trevor Bayne #6 Advocare 25th Anniversary Ford Fusion-Same scheme as Advocare, same A grade.

Ryan Blaney #12 Peak/Menard’s Ford Fusion-The 2018 Menard’s template works well, and this scheme looks good. This shade of yellow is also good. No complaints here! A

Paul Menard #21 OmniCraft Auto Parts Ford Fusion-Same scheme as last year, same A grade.

Joey Logano #22 Pennzoil Ford Fusion-Same scheme as last year, same A grade.

Gray Gaulding #23 EarthWater Toyota Camry-A new over designed mess for 2018. The color scheme doesn’t work, and the car is over designed, and it looks awful. F

Justin Marks #51 Harry’s Razors Chevy Camaro-While the color scheme is decent, and the design is decent, they don’t work with each other. They aren’t bad by themselves, but as a combo, it doesn’t look good. C+

Corey LaJoie #72 Schluter Systems Chevy Camaro-I still hate the waffle board scheme, but replacing the white side designs with a solid black works better, and takes a D- up to a C-.

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.
