Landon Cassill #00 Superior Essex Chevy Camaro-I like the color scheme here, blue and white works well. I think the black isn’t needed, and the design is over designed. I’ll give this a B- as a result.
Kevin Harvick #4 Harvick Beer Ford Mustang-Same scheme as Busch, same A grade.
Ryan Newman #6 Wyndham Rewards Pink Ford Mustang-Pinkwashing is an automatic F.
Chase Elliott #9 NAPA Night Vision Chevy Camaro-It’s a bold look, I like the use of metallic gold. I also like the designs, it’s not over designed. It’s a great look that earns an A.
Aric Almirola #10 Smithfield Racing for Bacon Ford Mustang-Do I really need to say anything than “bacon flame motif?” A
Ty Dillon #13 GEICO Throwback Chevy Camaro-Great shade of green, great throwback numbers and Richard Childress on the name rail all add up to an A scheme.
Ricky Stenhouse Jr. #17 Sunny D Pink Ford Mustang-Pinkwashing is an automatic F.
Paul Menard #21 Menard’s/Tarkett Ford Mustang-This new Menard’s template works well with blue. This is a great look, and it earns an A.
Corey LaJoie #32 Visone RV Ford Mustang-It’s a smooth look, with a great color scheme, and that will always earn an A.
David Ragan #38 Envision USA Ford Mustang-Another example of a great color scheme, but an over-designed mess of a design scheme. Toned down, this scheme could be a lot better, but this isn’t great, and earns a C.
Kyle Larson #42 McDonald’s Spicy Chicken Chevy Camaro-Same scheme as McDonald’s McDelivery, same B grade.
Darrell Wallace Jr. #43 Victory Junction Ford Mustang-It’s a unique look, I like the way it looks. It’s got a good color scheme, and it works well. A
Austin Theriault #51 Jacob Companies Chevy Camaro-The flag truck is a tradition at Talladega, and this faithful replica is a great look, that I can’t say anything bad about. A
Spencer Boyd #52 Manscaped Chevy Camaro-Another example of a scheme that could have been great, but is over designed. The silver designs are pointless, as are the sublimated designs. Still, it has a great color scheme, so I’ll give it a C.
Brendan Gaughan #62 Beard Oil/South Point Chevy Camaro-Pinkwashing is an automatic F.
Joey Gase #66 Fan Memories at Richmond Raceway Toyota Camry–This is an ugly over designed mess of a scheme. Also, why didn’t this scheme run at Richmond? It’s just awful. F
Blake Jones #77 Tennessee Shine/XXX Distillery Chevy Camaro–A smooth look, with a great color scheme will always earn an A.
Alex Bowman #88 Nationwide/Amazon Echo Auto Chevy Camaro–It has a great color scheme, and a bold look that isn’t over designed. This is a great look, and it earns an A.
Matt DiBenedetto #95 One Bite Toyota Camry–I like the shades of red and yellow used here, and the design is great. All things considered, this gets an A.
