Paint Scheme Grades-September 11, 2021

By David G. Firestone

Kevin Harvick #4 Busch Light Throwback Ford Mustang-Same scheme as 2018, same A grade.

Ryan Newman #6 Oscar Meyer Bologna Ford Mustang-A great look, with a great color scheme will always earn an A.

Matt DiBenedetto #21 Motorcraft Throwback Ford Mustang-I never really liked this scheme, and I still don’t. Everything from the door numbers to the wave is just bad. I’ll never like this. F

Ryan Preece #37 Kroger/Hershey’s S’mores Chevy Camaro-This isn’t great, but it does work. The color and design schemes work well, even though the template sucks. I’ll give this a B.

Anthony Alfredo #38 Chicago Pneumatic Compressors Ford Mustang-Same scheme as last year, same A grade.

Ricky Stenhouse Jr. #47 Kroger/Little Hug Chevy Camaro-The clashing of styles is really apparent, and, like many new Kroger schemes, it looks awful. This doesn’t work at all. F

Josh Bilicki #52 Juntion Fuels Throwback Ford Mustang-We may have a new front runner for best throwback of the year! I love the old MGD scheme, and this is a faithful replica! This is awesome, and it gets an A.

Justin Haley #77 Greenville Swamp Rabbits/Bon Secours Chevy Camaro-The shade of blue is kind of better, as are the cleaned up stripes. I’ll give this a C+

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.
