Paint Scheme Grades-March 5, 2022

By David G. Firestone

Ross Chastain #1 Casa Del Sol Tequila Chevy Camaro-It’s a smooth look, with a great color scheme, and that will always earn an A.

Austin Cindric #2 Menards/Quaker State Ford Mustang-Same scheme as last year, same C grade.

Austin Cindric #2 Autotrader Ford Mustang-This is a major update with the removal of the old Penske template. It looks great, and I can’t complain. A

Austin Cindric #2 Keystone Light Ford Mustang-Same scheme as last year, same A grade.

Austin Dillon #3 Behr Dynasty Chevy Camaro-Same scheme as last year, same A grade.

Kevin Harvick #4 Subway Ford Mustang-Same scheme as last year, same F grade.

Corey LaJoie #7 General Formulations/Mutoh Chevy Camaro-The green isn’t needed here, and the white is visually distracting. It’s not bad, so I’ll give it a B+

Tyler Reddick #8 Lenovo Chevy Camaro-Red and black is a great color scheme, and the design is well done, so this gets an A.

Aric Almirola #10 Rush/Mobil Delvac Ford Mustang-Same scheme as last year, same A grade.

Denny Hamlin #11 FedEx Ground Toyota Camry-Same scheme as FedEx Express, same A grade.

Daniel Hemric #16 Poppy Bank Chevy Camaro-I think that the stripes are over done, and that the white really isn’t needed. Still, it isn’t bad, so it gets a B.

Martin Truex Jr. #19 Reser’s Fine Foods Toyota Camry-It’s not terrible, but the blue and white isn’t needed, and takes an A scheme down to a B.

Joey Logano #22 Auto Trader Ford Mustang-This is a major update with the removal of the old Penske template. It looks great, and I can’t complain. A

Bubba Wallace #23 Wheaties Toyota Camry-It’s a smooth look, with a great color scheme, and that will always earn an A.

Jacques Villeneueve #27 Woodie’s Wash Shack Ford Mustang-I like the color scheme, and the design scheme works well. This gets an A.

Todd Gilliland #38 Frontline Ford Mustang-The shades of gray, and orange don’t work here, and the car is much too over designed, so this gets an F.

Cole Custer #41 Production Alliance Group Ford Mustang-Red and black is a great color scheme, and the design is well done, so this gets an A.

Ty Dillon #42 Allegiant Chevy Camaro-I like the shade of blue, and the stripe looks good. I also love the wheel well motif. A

Ricky Stenhouse, Jr. #47 Honey Nut Cheerios Chevy Camaro-So JTG Daugherty Racing has the new template, and I like it with this design. It works well, and 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.
