Paint Scheme Grades-September 29, 2018

By David G. Firestone

Landon Cassill #00 Dairi-o Chevy Camaro-The toned down elements look better, but I just don’t like the yellow used.  In the end, it’s worth an A-

Austin Dillon #3 Dow/VORASURF Chevy Camaro-Not a bad look at all.  I love the science designs on the side, and the color scheme is great. A

Aric Almirola #10 Smithfield Get Grilling America Ford Fusion-This scheme works well.  The wood motif works, the meat looks good, and the car looks great. A

Clint Bowyer #14 IT Savvy Ford Fusion-New sponsor for 2018, orange top, green bottom, white stripe, circuit motif across whole car. A

Justin Marks #15 GoPro Motorsports Chevy Camaro-It’s an ugly, over designed mess, but it has a good color scheme, so I’ll give it a D.

Daniel Suarez #19 Comcast Business Toyota Camry-Same scheme as last year, same D- grade.

Erik Jones #20 Craftsman Toyota Camry-It’s a smooth look, with a great color scheme, and that always earns an A.

Alon Day #23 Best Bully Snacks Toyota Camry-It’s a great shade of blue, and I like the subtle blue stripes on the sides.  It’s a great look. A

Chris Buescher #37 Cheerios Zero Hunger Zero Waste Chevy Camaro-This car needs more black.  White and yellow isn’t the greatest color combination in existence, and the addition of black would work better. B+

Jimmie Johnson #48 Lowe’s Throwback Chevy Camaro-Same scheme as last 2002, same A grade.

Jimmie Johnson #48 Lowe’s Throwback Patriotic Chevy Camaro-Same scheme as last 2001, same A grade.

Gray Gaulding #52 Live Hotel and Casino Ford Fusion-The red doesn’t work as well with the Jacob Companies elements as the blue does.  Still, it’s not a bad scheme, and I’ll give it a B+.

Dale Earnhardt Jr. #88 Nationwide Chevy Camaro-Get rid of the black and this would earn an A, but with the black, this earns a B+.

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.
