Paint Scheme Grades-February 19, 2022

By David G. Firestone

Austin Dillon #3 Bass Pro Shops/Tracker Off Road Chevy Camaro-My only complaint here is that the ice motif doesn’t really work. Other than that, this is great. A-

Brad Keselowski #6 Wyndham Rewards Ford Mustang– like this look. I think the scheme is great, and with a great color scheme, this gets an A.

Brad Keselowski #6 Castrol Ford Mustang-Red on green isn’t a good look, but the car is well designed, so I’ll give this a B.

Chase Elliott #9 UniFirst Chevy Camaro-Same scheme as last year, same A grade.

Ryan Blaney #12 Menards/Great Lakes Flooring Ford Mustang-Black looks better than light blue here, so this gets an A.

Ryan Preece #15 Jacob Companies Ford Mustang-It’s a great look, with a great color scheme, so it gets an A.

Chris Buescher #17 Wyndham Rewards Ford Mustang-Same scheme as #6, same B grade.

Chris Buescher #17 Castrol Ford Mustang-Same scheme as #6, same B grade.

Michael McDowell #34 Horizon Lobby Ford Mustang-I like the use of color here, and the car is well designed, so this gets an A.

Michael McDowell #34 Stage Front Ford Mustang-There is some over designing here, and the shade of orange isn’t great. It’s not terrible, so I’ll give it a B.

Michael McDowell #34 Fr8 Auctions Ford Mustang-It’s a smooth look, with a great color scheme, and that will always earn an A.

Todd Gilliland #38 Black’s Tire Ford Mustang-The white isn’t needed here, and the car is somewhat over designed. Still, it isn’t awful, so this gets a C.

B.J. McLeod #78 NASCAR Ignition Ford Mustang-This is a really good look, I like the toned down scheme, this 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.
