Paint Scheme Grades-October 17, 2020

By David G. Firestone

Quin Houff #00 Sim Seats Chevy Camaro-The only reason I didn’t give this an A-, the same as Permatex, is because I don’t think that white should be the primary color, more red or blue. Still, it’s not bad, so I’ll give it a B+

Austin Dillon #3 Bass Pro Shops/Tracker Off Road Chevy Camaro-This is a good look, the black works well, and the car as a whole looks great. The red waves work well too. A

Ryan Newman #6 Castrol Pink Ford Mustang-Pinkwashing is an automatic F.

Chris Buescher #17 Fastenal Pink Ford Mustang-Pinkwashing is an automatic F.

Erik Jones #20 Craftsman ACE/Children’s Miracle Network Toyota Camry-This is a really good design, it isn’t over designed, and the car looks great as a result. A

Ryan Preece #37 Maxwell Houses for Heroes Chevy Camaro-Camo doesn’t work on a race car, and blue camo is just so much worse! I can’t give this a passing grade, so this gets an F

Darrell Wallace Jr. #43 Columbia Sportswear Chevy Camaro-My only complaint here is that the white dots on black just don’t work, other than that, the car looks great. A

Jimmie Johnson #48 Ally Financial Pink Chevy Camaro-Pinkwashing is an automatic F.

Josh Bilicki #51 Rich Mar Florist/Lemons of Love Ford Mustang-Pinkwashing is an automatic F.

James Davison #53 Tilson Chevy Camaro-It’s a good look. The patriotic motif works well here. I like this, and I give it an A.

Daniel Suarez #96 Coca-Cola Hispanic Heritage Month Toyota Camry-This is a really good look. The car is designed well, and it gets an A.
