Paint Scheme Grades-May 25, 2019

By David G. Firestone

Landon Cassill #00 Elongator Tailgates Chevy Camaro-My only complaint here is that the yellow stripes are a tad over done. Other than that, this is a great scheme. A-

Kurt Busch #1 Advent Health Chevy Camaro-Same scheme as #40, same F grade.

Austin Dillon #3 Coke Zero Chevy Camaro-I think the side designs are over done, but the car as a whole looks good, and has a great color scheme. I give this an A-.

Ryan Newman #6 Oscar Meyer Ford Mustang-Replacing the hot dog motif with this motif is a downgrade. It still has a decent color scheme, but the design is worse. All things considered, I give it a B+.

Ryan Newman #6 Mazola Ford Mustang-Green can be a very difficult color to work with, but this is a great shade of green. Add in a good color scheme, and smooth design, and you have a scheme that earns an A.

Ty Dillon #13 Geico Chevy Camaro-Same scheme as last year, same F grade.

Ty Dillon #13 Geico Military Chevy Camaro-Same scheme as last year, same F grade.

Ross Chastain #15 VIP Racing Experience Chevy Camaro-A smooth design with a great color scheme will ALWAYS earn an A.

Kyle Busch #18 M&M’s Hazelnut Toyota Camry-The teal look is really good, and the design works well.  I can’t really say anything bad, so I won’t. A

Martin Truex Jr. #19 Bass Pro Shops Patriotic Toyota Camry-The patriotic motif works well, and the car has a really good design. This is a great scheme. A

Martin Truex Jr. #19 Bass Pro Shops Throwback Toyota Camry-I’m not always a fan of Bass Pro Shops throwbacks, some are better than others. That being said, this scheme is a good look, with a great color scheme. This scheme gets an A.

Paul Menard #21 Menard’s/Knauf Ford Mustang-Same scheme as #12, same B+ grade.

Joey Logano #22 Money Lion Ford Mustang-Same scheme as #22 same C grade.

Joey Logano #22 Shell/Pennzoil Ford Mustang-Amazing how changing the colors on the Penske Template vastly improves the scheme here. This is so much better than red and goldenrod.  This is a great scheme, and I can’t give this anything less than an A.

Corey LaJoie #32 Freedom Hard Ford Mustang-This is a great look! White with red stripes looks really good, and the car isn’t over designed. This scheme gets an A

Matt Tift #36 Surface Suncreen/Tunity Patriotic Ford Mustang-Replacing a regular scheme with patriotic elements can be difficult. In this case, it works very well. This looks really good, and I don’t have any complaints. A

Kyle Larson #42 Advent Health Chevy Camaro-Same scheme as #40, same F grade.

Jimmie Johnson #48 Ally Financial Patriotic Chevy Camaro-Could someone please explain to me why in the world it was decided that WHITE LETTERS ON CAMOUFLAGE was a good idea?  The letters and logo are so difficult to read when you are closely looking at the car, never mind when the car is at the track. This is the worse camouflage scheme I have ever seen, and that says a lot! F

Cody Ware #51 Jacob Companies Chevy Camaro-A smooth design with a great color scheme will ALWAYS earn an A.

B.J. McLeod #53 Enlisted Nine Flight Company Chevy Camaro-The military motif works well, and the car looks awesome! The numbers are amazing. This is a great scheme. A

Matt DiBenedetto #95 Anest Iwata Toyota Camry-I like fades, and this is a great fade.  Blue to black is a great fade. Add in that the car isn’t over designed, and you have a scheme worth an A.
