By David G. Firestone

Ross Chastain #1 GoPro Chevy Camaro-I like the look, I like the color scheme, and this gets an A.

Austin Cindric #2 Menards/Moen Ford Mustang-Same scheme as last year, same B+ grade.

Brad Keselowski #6 Solomon Plumbing Ford Mustang-I’m not sold on this new template, but this color scheme works well enough. B

Aric Almirola #10 Smithfield Spirals Ford Mustang-Red and black is a great color scheme, and the design scheme works well. A

Denny Hamlin #11 Sport Clips Haircuts Toyota Camry-I like the toned down sides, and the car has a smoother look. A

JJ Yeley #15 Nabor Force Ford Mustang-Good color scheme, not over designed, great look, gets an A.

JJ Yeley #15 Ford Mustang-Same scheme as last year, same A grade.

Christopher Bell #20 Yahoo! Toyota Camry-The dark blue is pointless, and I think the car is a bit over designed. B+

Michael McDowell #34 WISE-EV Ford Mustang-I HATE THIS COLOR SCHEME! This is a terrible color scheme. The light colors clash with the black, and the car is over designed. F

Todd Gilliland #38 Cross Country Adjusting Ford Mustang-I think the car is over designed, and the color scheme is mediocre. This is just bland, and it gets a C.

Kurt Busch #45 McDonald’s/Money Lion Toyota Camry-Too many contrasting designs, both color and design give this a cluttered look. I can’t defend this, so I won’t.

Ricky Stenhouse Jr. #47 Louisiana Hot Sauce Chevy Camaro-This isn’t really that bad, but when compared to the 2021 scheme, it’s a huge downgrade. This gets a C.

B.J. McLeod #78 Epilepsy Foundation Ford Mustang-I loves me a good fade, and this is a good fade. This works well, and it gets an A.

Daniel Suarez #99 GoPro Chevy Camaro-I like the look, I like the color scheme, and 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.
