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 20, 2021

By David G. Firestone

Kurt Busch #1 Advent Health Chevy Camaro-It’s an ugly, over designed mess, and the color scheme is awful. I give this an F.

Kyle Larson #5 Hendrickcars.com Chevy Camaro-Same scheme as last year, same A grade.

Denny Hamlin #11 FedEx Toyota Camry-I don’t like the off-center design on the sides, but I do like the overall design as well as the fade. The good and the bad cancel each other out, and this gets a C.

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

Garrett Smithley #13 Trophy Tractor Ford Mustang-Not even a good color scheme can save this disaster from an F grade. This might be one of the worst schemes I have ever seen.

Kaz Grala #16 Hyper Ice Chevy Camaro-I think that the black is over designed a bit, but it isn’t terrible. This gets an A-

Michael McDowell #34 Love’s Truck Stops Ford Mustang-Same scheme as last year, same A grade.

David Ragan #36 Select Blinds Ford Mustang-Same scheme as last year, same B grade.

Ryan Preece #37 Cottonelle Chevy Camaro-Same scheme as last year, same C grade.

Ross Chastain #42 Clover Chevy Camaro-Same scheme as last year, same A grade.

Cody Ware #51 Nurtec ODT Chevy Camaro-I love the fade of the stripe, and the blue is really good too. The car has a smooth and bold scheme, and this gets an A.

Joey Gase #53 Page Construction Ford MustangNew scheme for 2021, black, with green and teal stripe. B+

I don’t like the shade of green used, it needs to be darker. Also, the teal is needless. Still, it’s a decent scheme, so it gets a B+

Timmy Hill #66 VSI Racing Ford Mustang-The only thing keeping this scheme above an F grade is the color scheme. Other than that, this is an F scheme.

Jamie McMurray #77 Advent Health Chevy Camaro-A good color scheme balanced by a bad color scheme will always earn a C.

The Final Paint Scheme Grades of 2020-November 14, 2020

By David G. Firestone

Quin Houff #00 UNITS Moving and Portable Storage Chevy Camaro-This design is over designed a bit. It’s not horrible, and it has a good color scheme. I’ll give it an B+.

Brad Keselowski #2 Wabash National/Thank A Trucker Ford Mustang-Same scheme as Wabash National, same A grade.

Kevin Harvick #4 Busch Light #FACEATTHERACE Ford Mustang-It’s a really good scheme, and the car has a really good look. A

Tyler Reddick #8 Chevrolet Accessories Chevy Camaro-Same scheme as last year, same A grade.

Chase Elliott #9 NAPA Chevy Camaro-New scheme for 2020, yellow door numbers in honor of Jimmie Johnson. B-

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

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

Clint Bowyer #14 Clint Bowyer Tribute Ford Mustang-The wood grain motif works well, and the car has a great look. This is a great scheme, and it gets an A.

Matt DiBenedetto #21 Motorcraft Quick Lane Ford Mustang-Same scheme as last year, same A grade.

Joey Logano #22 PPG Ford Mustang-Same scheme as #2, same A grade.

JJ Yeley #27 Red Rock Secured Ford Mustang-I don’t like the white hood here. I think it is visually distracting. I give this an A-

Corey LaJoie #32 Keen Parts/Corvette Parts Ford Mustang-Same scheme as last year, same B+ grade.

Jimmie Johnson #48 Ally Financial Throwback Chevy Camaro-The Richard Petty motif would work, the Dale Earnhardt motif would work, the two together just look odd. Add in the odd door numbers, and I will give it a C.

Alex Bowman #88 ChevyGoods.com Chevy Camaro-Same as Adam’s Polishes, same A grade.

Alex Bowman #88 Truck Hero/Chevy Group Chevy Camaro-The clashing yellow door numbers are a downgrade, and they take a A scheme down to a B+.

Ty Dillon #13 GEICO Stir Up Savings Chevy Camaro-I think the shade of green can be adjusted, but it’s still a solid Halloween motif, and it earns an A.

JJ Yeley #27 Fat Boy Ice Cream Chevy Camaro-Very smooth look, and it has a great color scheme. This gets an A.
