Paint Scheme Grades-June 18, 2022

By David G. Firestone

Austin Dillon #3 Dow Patriotic Chevy Camaro-Looks good, nothing to complain about, great scheme. A

Brad Keselowski #6 Kohler Generators Power Reserve Ford Mustang-Getting rid of the blue fade makes this scheme work well, and it’s a great look. A

Corey LaJoie #7 Gnarly Premium Jerky Chevy Camaro-The only goof thing I can say is that this has a good color scheme. It’s over done, and the logo looks bad. D

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

Joey Hand #15 Built Ford Proud Ford Mustang-Same scheme as #10, same B grade.

Todd Gilliland #38 Chicago Pneumatic Compressors Ford Mustang-Same scheme as last year, same A grade.

Cole Custer #41 Autodesk/ Ford Mustang-Can’t really complain about this look, I like the added black. A

Ricky Stenhouse Jr. #47 Cottonelle Chevy Camaro-Over designed seems to be the name of the game with the #47 team, and this is yet another example, and a downgraded scheme from last year. F

Alex Bowman #48 Ally/Pride Month Chevy Camaro-Nothing really wrong with this one.

Daniel Suarez #99 Onx Homes/Renu Chevy Camaro-Where to start here? The yellow clashes with the rest of the scheme. The camo elements SUCK and the red and black just doesn’t work. Normally, I would at lease give some points to the color scheme, as I do like it, but since it makes the scheme worse, I can’t. F
