Paint Scheme Grades-May 14, 2022

By David G. Firestone

Ross Chastain #1 Coca Cola Throwback Chevy Camaro-I loved this scheme back in the day, and I love this now! A

Austin Cindric #2 Menard’s/Libman Throwback Ford Mustang-Replacing the red with green really takes this scheme down. Factor in that they replaced Kodak’s yellow with a much worse shade and you have a B- scheme.

Austin Dillon #3 Huk Performance Fishing Chevy Camaro-This is an example of a great scheme getting better! This looks great, and gets an A.

Brad Keselowski #6 King’s Hawaiian Ford Mustang-A smooth look with a great color scheme will always earn an A.

Aric Almirola #10 Smithfield Foods/Haas Automotion Throwback Ford Mustang-Great look, very faithful, no complaints here. A

Denny Hamlin #11 FedEx Express Throwback Toyota Camry-This scheme earned an A in 2016, and it earns an A today.

JJ Yeley #15 Ollie’s Bargain Outlet Throwback Ford Mustang-This scheme earned an B+ in 2015, and it earns an B+ today.

Daniel Hemric #16 AG1 by Athletic Greens Chevy Camaro-Decent color scheme with a mediocre design scheme will earn a C.

AJ Allmendinger #16 Andy’s Frozen Custard Chevy Camaro-A bad color scheme with a horrible design scheme will always earn an F.

Christopher Bell #20 SiriusXM Throwback Toyota Camry-Good color scheme, but I think the design is over done. Still, it isn’t bad, so I’ll give it a B-

Joey Logano #22 Shell/Pennzoil Throwback Ford Mustang-I like the faithful look, and the great color and design scheme works well. A

Bubba Wallace #23 Money Lion Toyota Camry-The color scheme is decent, but not only is the design scheme bad, but it clashes a bit with the color scheme. All things considered, this gets a D.

William Byron #24 RAPTOR Chevy Camaro-The white is not a good look, and clashes with the rest of the car. One of the other would work. Still, this isn’t awful, so this gets a B+

Ty Dillon #42 Petty/GMS Throwback Chevy Camaro– a faithful throwback, with a great look, and that earns an A.

Ty Dillon #42 Ferris Mowers Throwback Chevy Camaro-Great color scheme, great design scheme, everything looks good. A

Erik Jones #43 FocusFactor Throwback Chevy Camaro-It’s a faithful throwback, with a great look, and that earns an A.

Ricky Stenhouse Jr. #47 Kroger/Nature Valley Chevy Camaro-Horrible color scheme, and over designed, need I say more? F

Cody Ware #51 Nurtec ODT Throwback Chevy Camaro-I liked this back in the day, and I like this now. Great scheme, no complaints. A

B.J. McLeod #78 Throwback Ford Mustang-It’s a great look, with a great color scheme, and that will always earn 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.
