Kevin Harvick #4 Busch Outdoors Ford Fusion-Another example of a paint scheme rearranging deck chairs on the Titianic. The scheme is neither better nor worse than last year. I’ll give it the same C it got last year.
Chase Elliott #9 NAPA Nightvision Chevy Camaro-It’s a very toned down scheme, and the metallic gold works quite well. Nothing wrong here. A
Clint Bowyer #14 HaasV F1/Rush Truck Centers Ford Fusion-The two sponsors work well together, the scheme as a whole looks good, and I can’t say anything bad about it. A
Ross Chastain #15 Protect Your Mellon Chevy Camaro-Same scheme as last year, same A grade.
Paul Menard #21 Menard’s/Tarkett Ford Fusion-The new Menard’s template works well, and the scheme as whole looks great! A
William Byron #24 Hendrick Autoguard Chevy Camaro-My one complaint is that the white/silver stripes are pointless, and need to be eliminated. Other than that, it’s a great scheme. A-
Ryan Newman #31 Waste Masters Recycling Chevy Camaro-I still think that the side stripes are pointless, but the color scheme works, and the scheme is much more subdued than last year, so I’ll give it an A-.
Harrison Rhodes #52 The Medicine Shoppe Chevy Camaro-Orange and blue can be iffy, but the shades used here work very well, and the design is bold but not over done. A
