Paint Scheme Grades-October 29, 2022

By David G. Firestone

Ross Chastain #1 Kubota/Onx Homes Chevy Camaro-I think the designs are over done, but the color scheme works, so this gets a B.

Austin Dillon #3 Huk Performance Fishing Chevy Camaro-I like the neon motif, and the color scheme works well too. This gets an A.

J.J. Yeley #15 ConectUS Wireless/Kyocera Ford Mustang-I can’t really argue the look. It’s bold, but not over designed, and it gets an A.

Ty Gibbs #23 Money Lion Toyota Camry-Adding teal really doesn’t help anything, so it gets the same D the previous one did.

Cole Custer #41 Dixie Vodka Ford Mustang-The scheme is horribly messy, and has an awful color scheme. F

Bubba Wallace #45 McDonald’s Toyota Camry-Same scheme as #23, same B grade.

John Hunter Nemechek #45 Columbia Sportswear Company Toyota Camry-I like the look here, and I think that the car has a great look, and a great color scheme. A

Ricky Stenhouse Jr. #47 Food 4 Less/Slim Jim Chevy Camaro-The addition of more white takes away from the scheme as a whole. This takes an A scheme down to a B+

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.
