By David G. Firestone

Ross Chastain #1 ONX Homes/iFly Chevy Camaro-The only redeeming factor here is a good color scheme. The rest is awful. D

Austin Dillon #3 Bennett Transportations & Logistics Chevy Camaro-The designs are over done, and the light blue isn’t needed. This is still a good scheme, and it earns an A.

Chase Elliott #9 Adrenaline Shoc Performance Energy Chevy Camaro-My only complaint here is the tiger stripes on the rear. Other than that, this is a solid scheme. A-

Ryan Blaney #12 Menard’s/Richmond Ford Mustang-Same scheme as last year, same A grade.

Ryan Blaney #12 Wabash Ford Mustang-Get rid of the yellow, and this would be a solid A scheme. With the yellow, this is 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.
