The Final Paint Scheme Grades of 2020-November 14, 2020

By David G. Firestone

Quin Houff #00 UNITS Moving and Portable Storage Chevy Camaro-This design is over designed a bit. It’s not horrible, and it has a good color scheme. I’ll give it an B+.

Brad Keselowski #2 Wabash National/Thank A Trucker Ford Mustang-Same scheme as Wabash National, same A grade.

Kevin Harvick #4 Busch Light #FACEATTHERACE Ford Mustang-It’s a really good scheme, and the car has a really good look. A

Garrett Smithley #7 Victory Lane Quick Oil Change/Kendall Oil Chevy Camaro-Same scheme as #53, same F grade.

Tyler Reddick #8 Chevrolet Accessories Chevy Camaro-Same scheme as last year, same A grade.

Chase Elliott #9 NAPA Chevy Camaro-New scheme for 2020, yellow door numbers in honor of Jimmie Johnson. B-

The yellow door numbers are a downgrade, and they take a B+ scheme down to a B-.

Aric Almirola #10 Go Bowling Throwback Ford Mustang-It’s a great looking throwback, and I love the door numbers. A

Denny Hamlin #11 FedEx Toyota Camry-Same scheme as FedEx, same B+ grade.

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

Clint Bowyer #14 Clint Bowyer Tribute Ford Mustang-The wood grain motif works well, and the car has a great look. This is a great scheme, and it gets an A.

Chris Buescher #17 Fastenal Ford Mustang-This is a massive upgrade from previous schemes. This looks great, the car looks smooth, and the scheme gets an A.

Matt DiBenedetto #21 Motorcraft Quick Lane Ford Mustang-Same scheme as last year, same A grade.

Joey Logano #22 PPG Ford Mustang-Same scheme as #2, same A grade.

JJ Yeley #27 Figgers Wireless Ford Mustang-Another case of a bad design scheme with a great color scheme. They cancel each other out, and this gets a C.

JJ Yeley #27 Ford Mustang-A smooth look, with a great color scheme will always earn an A.

JJ Yeley #27 Red Rock Secured Ford Mustang-I don’t like the white hood here. I think it is visually distracting. I give this an A-

Corey LaJoie #32 Keen Parts/Corvette Parts Ford Mustang-Same scheme as last year, same B+ grade.

Ricky Stenhouse Jr. #47 Kroger Chevy Camaro-I like the new look. This is a much smoother look, and the car looks great. A

Jimmie Johnson #48 Ally Financial Chevy Camaro-Same scheme as last year, same A grade.

Jimmie Johnson #48 Ally Financial Chevy Camaro-Silver is such an improvement here. The Ally scheme works well with silver, and the car earns an A.

Jimmie Johnson #48 Ally Financial Throwback Chevy Camaro-The Richard Petty motif would work, the Dale Earnhardt motif would work, the two together just look odd. Add in the odd door numbers, and I will give it a C.

Timmy Hill #66 CrashClaimsR.us Toyota Camry-Same scheme as Pit Boss Grills, same A grade.

Garrett Smithley #77 DECK Leadership Chevy Camaro-The scheme is way too over designed, and the red is pointless. The scheme has a decent color scheme, and isn’t horrifically over designed, so I’ll give it a B-

Alex Bowman #88 ChevyGoods.com Chevy Camaro-Same as Adam’s Polishes, same A grade.

Alex Bowman #88 Truck Hero/Chevy Group Chevy Camaro-The clashing yellow door numbers are a downgrade, and they take a A scheme down to a B+.
