By David G. Firestone

Landon Cassill #00 Iron Mountain Data Centers Chevy Camaro-It’s a solid, smooth look, I love the use of blues, and the stripes are well done, so this gets an A.

Kurt Busch #1 Global Poker Chevy Camaro-Same scheme as Monster, same A grade.

Brad Keselowski #2 Alliance Truck Parts Ford Mustang-Same scheme as last year, same A grade.

Ryan Newman #6 Oscar Mayer Bacon Ford Mustang-The bacon motif works well, and the color scheme is great too. Nothing wrong here!A

Daniel Hemric #8 Okuma Chevy Camaro-Same scheme as last year, same D+ grade.

Clint Bowyer #14 IT Savvy Ford Mustang-Same scheme as last year, same A grade.

Ross Chastain #15 Chevy Camaro-I like this look, but I do think that the stripes are over done. A-

Erik Jones #20 Reser’s Fine Foods Toyota Camry-Same scheme as last year, same A grade.

Paul Menard #21 Quaker State Ford Mustang-Same scheme as last year, same B- grade.

Michael McDowell #34 Dockside Logistics Ford Mustang-I don’t like this new design as much as I like the Front Row template. I think the new side designs are over done. Still, it has a great color scheme, and the side designs aren’t as bad as they could be. I’ll give it a B+.

Chris Buescher #37 Kroger Flavor Fill Up Chevy Camaro-This scheme is horribly over designed. There are several elements, none of which work with each other. It just doesn’t look good. The only saving grace is that the color scheme is good, so I’ll give it a D-

Daniel Suarez #41 Arris Ruckus Ford Mustang-A smooth look, with a great color scheme will always earn an A.

Quin Houff #77 Rim Ryderz Chevy Camaro-Same scheme as #15/27, same A- grade.

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.
