Paint Scheme Grades-August 13, 2022

By David G. Firestone

Austin Dillon #3 Dow Mobility Science Chevy Camaro-This new look, is a tad cluttered, but it’s still good, so it gets an A-

Kevin Harvick #4 Busch Light Apple Ford Mustang-It’s still a good look, but the blue takes it from an A to an A-.

Ryan Blaney #12 Menards/Cardell Cabinetry Ford Mustang-Same scheme as last year, same A grade.

Noah Gragson #16 Chevrolet Accessories Chevy Camaro-The color scheme is mediocre, the design scheme is mediocre, this is mediocre, so it gets a C.

Harrison Burton #21 Motorcraft/Ford Senior Master Technicians Ford Mustang-I like the look here. The use of the wrench with the number placement works, and the white numbers look better than the gold numbers. A

Loris Hezemans #27 Sherfick Companies Ford Mustang-A smooth look with a great color scheme will always earn an A.

Austin Hill #33 Bennett Transportation & Logistics Chevy Camaro-The one shade of blue is fine, but two is a bit too much. The design is should be toned down too. It’s not terrible, so this gets a B+

Michael McDowell #34 Martin Transportation Systems Ford Mustang-I like the look, and it has a great color scheme. A

Ricky Stenhouse Jr. #47 SweetLeaf Chevy Camaro-Nothing really changed here, this is still a great scheme. A

Josh Bilicki #77 Zeigler Auto Group/Michigan State Spartans Chevy Camaro-A great color scheme with an awful color scheme equals out to be a C

Daniel Suarez #99 Worldwide Express Chevy Camaro-They took one of the worst schemes in 2022, added more blue, and somehow made it worse! F
