Paint Scheme Grades-October 20, 2018

By David G. Firestone

Joey Gase #00 PFK Foundation Chevy Camaro-Pinkwashing is an automatic F.

DJ Kennington #7 Wilride Transport Chevy Camaro-The light blue doesn’t really work with the black, and the design doesn’t exactly help either. Still, it isn’t needlessly over designed, so I’ll give it a D+

Aric Almirola #10 Smithfield Bacon for Life Ford Fusion-The color scheme is great, and I love the bacon motif. The stripes are good, and the whole car looks great. A

Ryan Blaney #12 Menard’s/Riggs Workwear Ford Fusion-The new Menard’s template looks even better in red than it does in yellow, and the car has a great look all around! A

Clint Bowyer #14 Peak Ford Mustang-We have our first 2019 scheme.  The color scheme is good, but the car as a whole is over designed. Peak has had some good schemes in the last few years, but this isn’t great. Still, I’ve seen worse, so I’ll give it a C.

Ryan Newman #31 Liberty National Pink Chevy Camaro-Pinkwashing is an automatic F.

Chris Buescher #37 Bush’s Chili Beans Chevy Camaro-The design on the side under the numbers is pointless, but otherwise the car as a whole looks great. All things considered, I’ll give it an A-.

Cody Ware #51 Jacob Companies Chevy Camaro-White should not be the primary color here. If it was red, it might get an A, but this isn’t that bad, so I’ll give it a B+.

Corey LaJoie #72 Winn-Dixie Chevy Camaro-The design is simple and the color scheme works quite well here. Nothing bad about this scheme! A

Jeffery Earnhardt #96 iK9 Toyota Camry-Pinkwashing is an automatic F.

David Starr #97 Vroom Brands Toyota Camry-A smooth, simple look with a great color scheme will always earn an A.

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.
