Paint Scheme Grades-May 24, 2020

By David G. Firestone

Brad Keselowski #2 Miller Lite Patriotic Ford Mustang-Same scheme as last year, same A grade.

Kevin Harvick #4 Busch Light YOURFACEHERE Ford Mustang-The new branding doesn’t hurt a great scheme. A

Ryan Newman #6 Oscar Mayer Ford Mustang-I like this scheme. It’s a good look, with a great color scheme, and I can’t say anything bad about it. A

Josh Bilicki #7 Gravely Chevy Camaro-It has a smooth look, a great color scheme and I can’t say anything bad about it. A

Aric Almirola #10 Smithfield #GoodFoodChallenge Ford Mustang-This would be so much better without the slashes. The slashes take an A scheme down to a C.

Ryan Blaney #12 Menard’s/Duracel Ford Mustang-Same scheme as last year, same A grade.

Brennan Poole #15 SpartanGO Chevy Camaro-It has a smooth look, a great color scheme, and that will always earn an A.

Kyle Busch #18 M&M’S Thank You Heroes Toyota Camry-I like the look here, the color scheme is great, and the car looks great. A

JJ Yeley #27 Jacob Construction Ford Mustang-Same scheme as #51, same A grade.

Corey LaJoie #32 Drydene Ford Mustang-The slight redesign doesn’t take away from the scheme. This is a good look, and it earns an A.

Michael McDowell #34 CarParts.com Ford Mustang-This is a horrible look. The blue and orange shades don’t work, and the car as a whole is over designed. I can’t give this anything but an F, so I won’t.

John Hunter Nemechek #38 Scag Power Equipment Ford Mustang-Either tiger stripes OR cutting edge designs…you can’t have both, because the car is an over designed mess. F

Cole Custer #41 HaasTooling.com Ford Mustang-I think the cutting edge designs are decent, a tad over done. The gray could be a little darker. Still, it’s not horrible, so I’ll give it a B.

Matt Kenseth #42 Credit One Bank Chevy Camaro-Black is a decent addition to this look, and it looks sharper. I like this and it gets an A.

Joey Gase #51 Agri Supply/Carolina Cooker Chevy Camaro-A great and faithful throwback will ALWAYS earn an A.

Garrett Smithley #53 Trophy Tractor Chevy Camaro-Black with red is a great color scheme, and the smooth look earns this scheme an A.

Reed Sorenson #77 Greenville Swamp Rabbits/Bon Secours Chevy Camaro-This is another example of a scheme where there is nothing really wrong, but nothing really right either. It’s just blah, and I’ll give it a C.

BJ McLeod #78 Christensen Arms Chevy Camaro-It has a smooth look, a great color scheme, and that will always earn an A.
