Paint Scheme Grades-November 6, 2021

By David G. Firestone

Quin Houff #00 Sim Seats Chevy Camaro-An awful design scheme, with a great color scheme will earn a C.

Austin Dillon #3 The Cowboy Channel Chevy Camaro-I like a good fade, and I like the holidays, so this is a great scheme! A

Ryan Newman #6 Kohler Generators Halloween Ford Mustang-This is a unique Halloween look. It’s got a great color scheme, and it looks great. A

Aric Almirola #10 Smithfield/iHop Ford Mustang-The light blue rear doesn’t do the car any favors, and the designs look odd as a result. It’s a mediocre scheme that gets a C.

Chris Buescher #17 Fifth-Third Bank Pink Ford Mustang-Pinkwashing is an automatic F.

Ryan Preece #37 Thomas English Muffins and Bagels/Kroger Chevy Camaro-The new white is visually distracting, and it takes away from the smooth look. I’ll give this an A-

Anthony Alfredo #38 Dude Wipes Halloween Ford Mustang-This is a great look! The colors work, and the design is awesome. A

Cole Custer #41 Dixie Vodka Peach Cocktail Ford Mustang-Peach colors don’t work as well as other colors, and the scheme suffers as a result. It’s not bad, so I’ll give it a B.

Erik Jones #43 Goody’s Cool Orange Chevy Camaro-My only complaint here is that the blue isn’t needed. Other than that, this is a great scheme. A-

Josh Bilicki #52 Insurance King Ford Mustang-This works as a scheme! The mummy motif works, and the car looks great. A

Joey Gase #53 Adkins Construction Chevy Camaro-I like the motif here, and the color scheme is great, so this gets an A.

Justin Haley #77 Spire+ Chevy Camaro-It’s a decent scheme, nothing really wrong, so it gets an A.

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.
