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.
