Kevin Harvick #4 Busch Plaid Ford Fusion-The plaid look is a great look, and the color scheme is good. It’s an all around great scheme. A
Ryan Blaney #12 Carlisle Tools Ford Fusion-The Penske template works well or horribly dependng pn the color scheme. Gold and white works well. This scheme is a good look, and I can’t say anything bad about it. A
Ryan Blaney #12 Body Armor Ford Fusion-If the black stripe were removed, and the triangles toned down, I would be more willing to give this a higher grade, but all things considered, it gets a B+.
Clint Bowyer #14 Mobil 1 Ford Fusion-Same scheme as last year, same A grade.
Ricky Stenhouse Jr. #17 Sunny D Ford Fusion-Same scheme as last year, same F grade.
Kyle Busch #18 Skittles Sweet Heat Toyota Camry-Same scheme as last year, same A grade.
Paul Menard #21 Menard’s/Dutch Boy Ford Fusion-I’m beginning to think that this new Menard’s template is the best template in NASCAR history. I’ve yet to see a bad scheme using this template. This is another example of a great Menard’s scheme. A
Matt DiBenedetto #32 Crowdfunded Ford Fusion-It’s a smooth, simple look, and the sponsorship was acquired through crowdfunding. All in all, I’ll give it an A.
Michael McDoewll #34 K-Love Ford Fusion-Same scheme as last year, same A grade.
Chris Buescher #37 Scott Towels Chevy Camaro-It’s a decent color scheme, but the side designs look somewhat over designed, but it’s not horrible. It’s a decent look, and I’ll give it a B+.
David Ragan#38 MDS Ford Fusion-A smooth, simple look with a great color scheme will always earn an A.
Kurt Busch #41 Mobil 1/Haas CNC Ford Fusion-Same scheme as last year, same A grade.
Darrell Wallace Jr. #43 Farmer John Chevy Camaro-It’s a good color scheme, and it’s unique, and it is a good look. A
Timmy Hill #51 Chevy Camaro-That’s an old school scheme, with a great color scheme. I can’t give this scheme anything less than an A.
DJ Kennington #96 Northern Provincial Pipelines LTD Toyota Camry–No change. A
