Paint Scheme Grades-April 17, 2021

By David G. Firestone

Quin Houff #00 Gardner Marsh Chevy Camaro-The stripes are very over done. The color scheme is good, so I’ll give it a B+

Brad Keselowski #2 Freightliner Ford Mustang-My only complaint here is that the front stripes are pointless. Other than that, this is a great scheme. A-

Austin Dillon #3 American Ethanol Chevy Camaro-It’s still a good scheme, but the black is a downgrade, so this goes from an A to an A-.

Kevin Harvick #4 Busch NA Ford Mustang-The red and white designs are horrid, and they look out of place when compared with the rest of the scheme. Still, it’s not horrific, so I’ll give it a C.

Corey LaJoie #7 Ark.io Chevy Camaro-Ark.io loves to pointlessly over design their race cars, and this example is no different. There is nothing good I can say, so this gets an F.

Aric Almirola #10 Smithfield Anytime Favorites Ford Mustang-This is a great scheme, the color and fade work well, and the car looks great! A

Chase Briscoe #14 Rush’s Truck Stops Ford Mustang-Same scheme as last year, same A grade.

James Davison #15 Nurtec ODT Military Salutes Program Navy Chevy Camaro-I like the color scheme, but the car is a tad over designed. The photo motif is not a good look, but it’s a passable scheme, so I’ll give it a C.

James Davison #15 Jacob Companies Chevy Camaro-Same scheme as #52, same B grade.

Kyle Busch #18 Snickers Peanut Brownie Toyota Camry-It’s a smooth look, that isn’t over designed, and that will always earn an A.

Christopher Bell #20 Toyota Toyota Camry-There is no real change in terms of grade. It’s still an A- scheme.

Joey Logano #22 Shell/Pennzoil Throwback Ford Mustang-This is a great throwback! I love the look the car has, and it’s smooth. A

Bubba Wallace #23 DoorDash Toyota Camry-I actually like this scheme a little more than the other DoorDash scheme. I think this works well, and it gets an A.

Joey Gase #28 Register Me Ford Mustang-I love a good, faithful throwback, and this is a good, faithful throwback. I miss Texaco as a sponsor, and this brings back memories. This gets an A.

Ryan Preece #37 Louisiana Hot Sauce Chevy Camaro-The yellow on the rear is pointless, and visually distracting. I think it takes away from a great scheme. A-

Anthony Alfredo #38 iRacing Ford Mustang-This reminds me of the the Hendrickcars scheme, which I like, and it is a great look. A

Ricky Stenhouse Jr. #47 Kroger/Crest Chevy Camaro-This is just a meh template, and it creates meh schemes. C

Garrett Smithley #51 Nurtec ODT Military Salutes Program Air Force Chevy Camaro-I like the color scheme, but the car is a tad over designed. The photo motif is not a good look, but it’s a passable scheme, so I’ll give it a C.

Josh Bilicki #52 Insurance King Ford Mustang-Everything I said about Brad Keselowski’s Freightliner scheme applies here. The front stripes are pointless. Other than that, this is a great scheme. A-

Josh Bilicki #52 Nurtec ODT Military Salutes Program Army Ford Mustang-I like the color scheme, but the car is a tad over designed. The photo motif is not a good look, but it’s a passable scheme, so I’ll give it a C.

JJ Yeley #53 Fat Boy Ice Cream Chevy Camaro-Same scheme as last year, same A grade.

JJ Yeley #53 Nurtec ODT Military Salutes Program Marines Chevy Camaro-I like the color scheme, but the car is a tad over designed. The photo motif is not a good look, but it’s a passable scheme, so I’ll give it a C.

BJ McLeod #78 CorvetteParts.net Ford Mustang-It’s a slightly over designed scheme, with a mediocre color scheme. All things considered, this gets a C-.

Paint Scheme Grades-March 3, 2021

By David G. Firestone

Kevin Harvick #4 #BuschDirtCar Ford Mustang-The dirt motif works well here, and I think the car has a unique and cool look. A

Kyle Larson #5 Freightliner Chevy Camaro-Black and silver work well with this template. The car looks great, and earns an A

Ryan Newman #6 Oscar Mayer Cold Cuts Ford Mustang-I like the fade, and the mustard motif works very well. A

Corey LaJoie #7 NASCAR Trucks at Knoxville Chevy Camaro-This would be a solid A, without the sublimated designs, and black on the side. With these aspects, this gets a C.

Ryan Blaney #12 Advance Auto Parts Ford Mustang-Same scheme as last year, same D grade.

James Davison #15 Chevy Camaro-A smooth look, with a great color scheme will always earn an A.

Matt DiBenedetto #21 Menards/Quaker State Ford Mustang-Same scheme as last year, same C grade.

Ryan Preece #37 Bush’s Best/Kroger Chevy Camaro-It’s an ugly, over designed mess. This is awful, I hate it, and it gets an F.

Josh Bilicki #52 Insurance King Ford Mustang-It’s a bold, and unique look, that isn’t over designed. This gets an A.

Joey Gase #53 Donate Life Georgia Chevy Camaro-It’s a decent design scheme ruined by a mediocre color scheme. If this was red, black and yellow, it would work better. This scheme gets a C.

Timmy Hill #66 Supreme Transportation Toyota Camry-A smooth look, with a great color scheme will always earn an A.

Ty Dillon #96 Bass Pro Shops/Toyota Certified Used Vehicles Toyota Camry-There is simply too much going on here for this to be good. It’s ugly, over designed, and just looks horrible. F

Paint Scheme Grades-March 27, 2021

By David G. Firestone

Corey LaJoie #7 NFL Alumni Association/Folds of Honor Chevy Camaro-This is just a mediocre scheme, not much worth noting. The color scheme is OK, as is the design. C

Kyle Busch #18 M&Ms Messages Toyota Camry-Same scheme as last year, same A grade.

Christopher Bell #20 Sirius/XM Toyota Camry-The newer, cleaner design is a much needed improvement over last year’s design. Add in a great color scheme, and you have an A scheme.

Matt DiBenedetto #21 Menards/Maytag Ford Mustang-Same scheme as last year, same A grade.

Austin Cindric #33 Pirtek Ford Mustang-Same scheme as last year, same F grade.

Ryan Preece #37 Planters Chevy CamaroThe white and yellow designs are a major downgrade from last year. It’s still a decent scheme, so I’ll give it a B

Anthony Alfredo #38 Georgia Peanut Commission Ford Mustang-I’m not really into peanuts, but this scheme looks great! The peanut motif works, and the color scheme is great. A

Timmy Hill #66 Supreme Transportation Group Toyota Camry-The only good thing about this is that I like the shades of blue and silver. Other than that, this is a terrible scheme. The stripes of over designed, and the orange doesn’t work. D

Stewart Friesen #77 Halmar International Chevy Camaro-Another example of a great color scheme with a bad design scheme. They cancel each other out, and this gets a C.

Shane Golobic #78 Elk Grove Ford/NOS Energy Drink Ford Mustang-Even with a decent color scheme, the car is so over designed, that I can’t give this anything higher than an F.

Paint Scheme Grades-March 16, 2021

By David G. Firestone

Austin Dillon #3 BetMGM Chevy Camaro-I love the color scheme, the shades of gold and red really worked. I hate the design scheme, it’s awful. The two cancel each other out, and this gets a C.

Ryan Newman #6 Wyndham Rewards Ford Mustang-Toning down the designs might get this car to an A, but with the designs, this gets an A-.

Corey LaJoie #7 Built Bar Chevy Camaro-I’m really tired of seeing Corey LaJoie’s face on his hood. From this point onwards, anytime a driver puts his face on the hood, it’s an automatic F.

Tyler Reddick #8 Quartz Hill Records Chevy Camaro-My only complaint here is that there are too many stripes. A-

Tyler Reddick #8 BetMGM Chevy Camaro-Same scheme as #3, same C grade.

Aric Almirola #10 Smithfiled Power Bites Ford Mustang-Same scheme as last year, same A grade.

Aric Almirola #10 Pit Boss Grills Ford Mustang-The silver side design needs to go. Without the silver side design, this gets an A. With it, this gets a C.

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

Joey Gase #15 NV Donor Chevy Camaro-The designs aren’t really needed here, otherwise this would get an A. A-

Kyle Busch #18 Ethel M Chocolates Toyota Camry-Gray with chocolate will always work very well. Plus the car isn’t over designed, so it gets an A.

Bubba Wallace # 23 Columbia Sportswear Chevy Camaro-The blue works, the camo doesn’t, and they cancel this out, so this gets a C.

Ryan Preece #37 Natural Light Seltzer Chevy Camaro-The color scheme and fade work perfectly, and the designs work too. This gets an A.

Erik Jones #43 Medallion Bank Chevy Camaro-Another example of a good color scheme being countered with an awful design scheme. They cancel each other out, and this gets a C.

Ricky Stenhouse Jr. #47 Kroger Chevy Camaro-Even a plain Kroger scheme doesn’t get a better grade. This is just a meh template. C

Alex Bowman #48 Ally/Best Friends Animal Society Chevy Camaro-I love the fade, but the color scheme makes me sick. They cancel each other out, and this gets a C.

Josh Bilicki #52 Dollar Loan Center Ford Mustang-A good color scheme, and a good design scheme will always earn an A.

Garrett Smithley #53 Trophy Tractor Chevy Camaro-New sponsor for 2021, same as #15. F

Same scheme as #15, same F grade.

Timmy Hill #66 Ford Mustang-A smooth look, with a great color scheme will always earn an A.

Timmy Hill #66 LasVegas.net Ford Mustang-A smooth look, with a great color scheme will always earn an A.

Justin Haley, #77 Nations Guard Toyota Camry-I like the dark blue, that’s the only good thing I can say. I hate the design, I hate the shades of green and pink, and I think the car would look worse without the black. D

BJ McLeod #78 Surface Sunscreen Ford Mustang-I love the blue, I love the water motif, I can’t say anything bad about this scheme. A

Paint Scheme Grades-February 6, 2021

By David G. Firestone

Kurt Busch #1 Gear Wrench Chevy Camaro-Same scheme as last year, same B grade.

Brad Keselowski #2 Keystone Light Ford Mustang-The shade of blue is great, and the mountain motif works well. This gets an A.

Brad Keselowski #2 Dent Wizard Ford Mustang-Same scheme as last year, same F grade.

Corey LaJoie #7 Youtheory Chevy Camaro-I hate the black roof! This is a decent scheme, but the black roof ruins it. I’ll give this a B.

Tyler Reddick #8 Cheddar’s Scratch Kitchen Chevy Camaro-This is way too over designed for my taste. This might work better with another color scheme, but this is awful. F

Chase Elliott #9 Hooters Chevy Camaro-Same scheme as last year, same A grade.

Denny Hamlin #11 FedEx Express Toyota Camry-Same scheme as last year, same B+ grade.

Denny Hamlin #11 FedEx Ground Toyota Camry-Same scheme as last year, same B+ grade.

Denny Hamlin #11 FedEx Freight Toyota Camry-Same scheme as last year, same B+ grade.

Martin Truex Jr. #19 Auto Owner’s Insurance Toyota Camry-My only complaint is that the gradient should be a fade. Other than that, this gets a A.

Austin Cindric #33 Verizon Ford Mustang-It’s bold, with a smooth look, and a great color scheme. That will ALWAYS earn an A.

Erik Jones #43 RP Funding Chevy Camaro-A smooth look with a great color scheme will always earn an A.

Daniel Suarez #99 iFly Chevy Camaro-It’s an ugly, over designed mess. The only reason this is getting a passing grade, is because I like the color scheme. D-
