Paint Scheme Grades-November 17, 2018

By David G. Firestone

Landon Cassill #00 Ashurt American Honey Chevy Camaro-Same scheme as Brookshire’s Foods, same B+ grade.

Jamie McMurray #1 Cessna/EZGO Chevy Camaro-Same scheme as Cessna, same A grade.

Brad Keselowski #2 Miller Lite Holiday Ford Fusion-The ugly sweater motif works very well here, and it works well with the already great color scheme, so this is getting an A

Ross Chastain #15 Blockcard Chevy Camaro-The front stripes don’t look good.  Those stripes barely work for a fade, but this isn’t a fade.  Add in that the shade of green used isn’t great, and you have a scheme that could be better.  Still, it’s not awful, so I’ll give it a B+.

J.J. Yeley #23 SHE Beverage Toyota Camry-I think the car is somewhat over designed, and the pink just doesn’t work with the rest of the scheme.  It’s not awful, but it’s not great, so it gets a C-.

Ryan Newman #31 Cat Global Mining Chevy Camaro-The black and yellow look is good, the car has a great design, and I can’t find anything wrong with this car. A

David Ragan #38 Trident Seafoods Wild Alaska Pollock Ford Fusion-The fish motif works very well.  It’s a bold look, and while some may say it’s over designed,  I say it looks like an A scheme

Mark Smith #73 Standard Plumbing Supply Chevy Camaro-The car has a smooth look with a great color scheme, and that will always earn an A.

Tanner Berryhill #97 Excel Therapy/Maximum Off-Road Toyota Camry-The zigzag design is a touch over done, but the color scheme works, and the car does look good.  All in all, I’m giving this an A-
