The Driver Suit Blog-Paint Scheme Grades-February 14, 2015

By David G. Firestone

Jamie McMurray #1 Sherwin Williams Chevy SS-Red, white and blue is a great scheme, the fade looks pretty good, and I do like the reverse fade design. The front does need some work, so I’ll give it a B+

Brad Keselowski #2 Alliance Truck Parts Ford Fusion-Black and yellow is a great color scheme, and the Penske template works quite well here, so I’ll give it an A+

Alex Bowman #7 Nikko/Toy State Chevy SS-The car, while having a good color scheme, is over designed, and the hood logo is over done. D-

Denny Hamln #11 FedEx Office Toyota Camry– New look for the FedEx Camry and it is a great one! It has a smooth look with a great color scheme, and it works very well. A+

Denny Hamlin #11 FedEx Freight Toyota Camry-New look for the FedEx Camry and it is a great one! It has a smooth look with a great color scheme, and it works very well. A+

Denny Hamlin #11 FedEx Ground Toyota Camry– New look for the FedEx Camry and it is a great one! It has a smooth look with a great color scheme, and it works very well. A+

Casey Mears #13 Geico Chevy SS-Good color scheme, but -The blue is too bright, as is the yellow. The car is overdesigned, and the whole car looks like a mess. D-

Clint Bowyer #15 Peak Toyota Camry-Same scheme as last year same B grade.

J.J. Yeley #23 Dr. Pepper/Maxim Fantasy Sports Toyota Camry-The color scheme is good, the design is decent, but the Dr. Pepper design over the door number takes it from an A to a B-

Chase Elliott #25 NAPA Chevy SS-Similar to his Nationwide scheme, this design is a bit overdesigned on the side, but the good color scheme makes up for it somewhat. I’ll give it a B

Paul Menard #27 Menard’s/Serta Chevy SS-Same scheme as last year, same C+ grade

Ryan Newman #31 Granger Chevy SS-Great color scheme, decent design, B+

David Ragan #34 KFC Ford Fusion-Great color scheme, and I love the new design, with the KFC red stripes on the back, and all white front. A+

David Ragan #34 CSX Ford Fusion-This is a very solid scheme, with great colors, great design and an overall great look. CSX did this scheme very well and it gets an A+

Landon Cassill #40 Snap 24-7 Fitness Chevy SS-Good color scheme, and while this is another example of logo as side design, it works well. A+

Kyle Larson #42 Target Chevy SS-The scheme looks decent, I like the white on the back, though I do not like the Target logos at the bottom. That takes a scheme that was an A grade to a B-
