Paint Scheme Grades-April 6, 2019

By David G. Firestone

Landon Cassill #00 USFRA Chevy Camaro-Same scheme as last year, same B+ grade. 

Austin Dillon #3 Realtree Chevy Camaro-Last year’s design was bad, this is worse!  At least the white made sense a little bit, the green and black curves make no sense!  This is not a great look, at all. F

Kevin Harvick #4 Mobil 1/O’Reilly Auto Parts Ford Mustang-Same scheme as Mobil 1, same A grade

Daniel Hemric #8 Bulwark FR/Wayne Workwear Chevy Camaro-Getting rid of the blue and toning down the curve could get this scheme into the A range, but with the current amount of designs, this gets a B-

Ryan Blaney #12 Menards/Cardell Cabinetry Ford Mustang-Red and yellow is a great look on race cars, and this is no exception.  This new template is a little finicky, but this looks great.  I can’t give this anything less than an A, so I won’t.

Clint Bowyer #14 Rush Truck Stops/Cummins Ford Fusion-Same scheme as last year, same A grade

Reed Sorenson #27 Solomon Plumbing Chevy Camaro-The curves look good, but this does get a demerit, based on the 2018 scheme.  It’s only an A- from an A.

Darrell Wallace Jr. #43 World Wide Technology Chevy Camaro-Same scheme as last year, same C grade

Timmy Hill #66 American Valor Foundation/CrashClaimsR.Us Toyota Camry-Same scheme as NV Donor, same B- grade

Garrett Smithley #77 Trophy Tractor Chevy Camaro-A smooth look with a great color scheme will always get 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.
