Quin Houff #00 Boss Hoss Cycles Chevy Camaro-Same scheme as last year, same A grade.
Kevin Harvick #4 Subway Delivery Ford Mustang-The car is much too over designed, the black isn’t needed, and the green and yellow don’t work with the sublimated designs. F
Tyler Reddick #8 Food City/Childress Vineyards Chevy Camaro-Another instance of two different design schemes on one car, and while there isn’t anything wrong, there isn’t anything right either. C
Tyler Reddick #8 Realtree Chevy Camaro-Camo does NOT look good on a race car, and the white doesn’t help at all. F
James Davison #15 Greatest Generations Foundation Chevy Camaro-It’s a very well designed car. It isn’t over designed, and the color scheme is great. A
Martin Truex Jr. #19 Bass Pro Shops/SherryStrong.org Toyota Camry-This is a great scheme, with a great color scheme. Also, since Sherry Pollex has battled ovarian cancer, I won’t come down like I do most pinkwashing, since she has a real reason to use the color. This will apply for all drivers. If you run pink to support someone you know, you will get a pass. A
Matt DiBenedetto #21 Reese/Drawtite Ford Mustang-Same scheme as last year, same A grade.
Bubba Wallace #23 McDonald’s Toyota Camry-This is another scheme where nothing is really wrong, but nothing is really right either. It’s just meh. C
Ryan Preece #37 Viva Chevy Camaro-It’s a great look, that isn’t over designed, and that will earn an A.
Ricky Stenhouse Jr. #47 Kroger Chevy Camaro-I like the new Kroger template better than the old one, but this one, with the four logos just looks awful. I can’t say anything good here. F
Garrett Smithley #53 Boom Mobile Chevy Camaro-It’s a great look, that isn’t over designed, and that will earn an A.
David Starr #66 Whataburger Toyota Camry-It’s a smooth look, with a great color scheme, and that will always earn an A.
BJ McLeod #78 International Materials Ford Mustang-I like the white front and stripe, the blue and red rear works, and this scheme is great. A
BJ McLeod #78 Honor And Remember Ford Mustang-Camo does NOT look good on a race car, and even the black roof can’t save this. F
Daniel Suarez #99 Coca-Cola Hispanic Heritage Month Chevy Camaro-I get what they were trying to do, but it’s not great. It looks jumbled, and forced, and it doesn’t work. Still, it isn’t horrible, so I’ll give it a C.
