Paint Scheme Grades-August 20, 2022

By David G. Firestone

Austin Dillon #3 Huk Performance Fishing Chevy Camaro-I don’t understand what they are trying to do here. This doesn’t make sense. Is it water? Is it clouds? I don’t know. It’s ugly and confusing, so it gets an F.

Brad Keselowski #6 Roush Parts Ford Mustang-It’s a solid scheme, the color is great, this gets an A.

Harrison Burton #21 Menards/Dutch Boy Ford Mustang-PASTELS HAVE NO PLACE IN NASCAR! Furthermore the diamonds look awful. F

Michael McDowell #34 Chicago Pneumatic Compressors Ford Mustang-Same scheme as last year, same A grade.

Cole Custer #41 Jacob Construction Ford Mustang-Amazingly, having the whole car as a Jacob Construction design doesn’t work, it’s the same B- as the dual design.

Ty Gibbs #45 Air Jordan 11 “Concord” Toyota Camry-Not over designed, great look, this gets an A.

Ricky Stenhouse, Jr. #47 Kleenex Chevy Camaro-Another example of needless over design. The great look last year has been replaced with this disaster. F

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.
