Paint Scheme Grades-May 12, 2017

By David G. Firestone

Landon Cassill #00 RNH Electric Chevy Camaro-Decent color scheme, decent design scheme, they just don’t work well together. It’s a rather bland scheme, that is worth a C.

Ross Chastain #15 Eat Florida Watermelon Chevy Camaro-I LOVE the watermelon motif used here! This is an amazing look, and I can’t give it anything less than an A.

Ricky Stenhouse Jr. #17 Little Hug Fruit Barrels Ford Fusion-Same scheme as last year, same F grade.

Kyle Busch #18 Pedigree Toyota Camry-Same basic scheme as last year, same A grade.

Michael McDowell #34 Dockside Logistics Ford Fusion-Same scheme as last year, same A grade.

Chris Buescher #37 Kroger Checklist Chevy Camaro-Same basic scheme as #47, same B- grade.

Darrell Wallace Jr. #43 World Wide Technology Chevy Camaro-Decent color scheme, good design scheme, they don’t work together. I also don’t like the dark blue front, it should be used throughout the whole car. C

Darrell Wallace Jr. #43 Eckrich Chevy Camaro-Good color scheme, good design scheme, they work well together, and it’s a good look that earns an A.

Cody Ware #51 Keen Buildings Chevy Camaro-The matte black look is good, the car has a smooth look, and the car has a great overall look. A

Kasey Kahne #95 Ollies Bargain Outlet Chevy Camaro-Its a good look, with a great color scheme. It works very well. A

Derrike Cope #99 Star Com Fiber Chevy Camaro-Reversing the colors of the #00 doesn’t really help, in fact, it takes a C scheme down to a C-. The yellow front works better for this scheme.

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.
