Paint Scheme Grades-June 19, 2021

By David G. Firestone

Kevin Harvick #4 Busch Beer #BuschToThemoon Ford Mustang-The space motif works well, and the color scheme works too, so this gets an A.

Tyler Reddick #8 iCashautos/I Am Second Chevy Camaro-The only thing I like here is the black, other than that, this is just a mess. D-

Ryan Blaney #12 Menards/Wrangler Ford Mustang-This is a great scheme. The shade of blue works, and this car looks great. A

David Starr’s #13 T Top Mfg Toyota Camry-A smooth look with a great color scheme will always earn an A.

James Davison #15 Go FMX/America’s Best Value Inn Chevy Camaro-Recoloring the design isn’t an upgrade, or a downgrade. A-

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

Bubba Wallace #23 DoorDash Toyota Camry-The gold numbers actually look better here, and this car looks great regardless. A

Austin Cindric #33 Pirtek Ford Mustang-This is a horrible scheme, with the colors all over the place, and a bad design. F

Ricky Stenhouse Jr. #47 Kroger/Bush’s Best Chevy Camaro-This is the worst template I have ever seen, because it clashes with every other sponsor, and itself when there is no secondary sponsor. F

Timmy Hill’s #66 Boathouse Bar & Grill Toyota Camry-If it was just the blue, I could give this a higher grade, but with the blue, this gets a B.

Daniel Suarez #99 Tootsie’s Orchid Lounge Chevy Camaro-Getting rid of either the blue or orchid motif would work better, but this isn’t bad, so I’ll give it a B+

I'm just a normal guy who collects race-worn driver suits, helmets, sheet metal, and other race-worn items. I will use this blog to help collectors, and race fans alike understand the various aspects of driver suits and helmets, and commentate on paint schemes.
