Paint Scheme Grades-July 25, 2015

Austin Dillon #3 NRA Museum Chevy SS-Good color scheme, good design, A+.

Austin Dillon #3 Dow/Utility Chevy SS-Same as Dow scheme, B+.

Auston Dillon #3 Dow Agro Sciences Chevy SSGood color scheme, good design, A+.

Alex Bowman #7 Advance Auto Parts Chevy SSGood color scheme, good design, A+.

Alex Bowman #7 Marsh Supermarkets Chevy SS-The red/green color scheme that Marsh uses doesn’t translate well to flames. It’s still a good design though, so I’ll give it a B+.

Sam Hornish Jr. #9 Advance Auto Parts Ford Fusion– B+.

Danica Patrick #10 GoDaddy Black Chevy SS-The scheme works much better than the current GoDaddy scheme, but that yellow roof just takes away from the overall motif, and earns a C+.

Tony Stewart #14 Bass Pro Shops/Ducks Unlimited Chevy SS-Overall color scheme is great, the design is horrible, and it averages out to a C+.

Clint Bowyer #15 Casey’s General Store Toyota Camry-The Bowyer template actually works here, with the color scheme.  I give it an A-.

Clint Bowyer #15 5 Hour Energy Toyota Camry-The half template scheme works quite well with this scheme, and it has a much smoother look, so I’ll give it an A+.

Greg Biffle #16 Lilly Diabetes Ford Fusion-Another instance of a great color scheme ruined by horrible design.  The white/black/red/green color scheme works well…just not with this design.  I’ll give it a C-.

Kyle Busch #18 Interstate Batteries Center Toyota Camry-Same as Interstate Batteries scheme, same F grade.

Carl Edwards #19 Minions Toyota Camry-Good color scheme, good design, A+.

Matt Kenseth #20 DeWalt Made In America Toyota Camry-Good color scheme, good design, A+.

Ryan Blaney #21 Snap On Ford Fusion-Good color scheme, good design, A+.

Ryan Blaney #21 SKF Ford Fusion-Good color scheme, good design, A+.

Joey Logano #22 Auto Trader/Pennzoil Ford Fusion-Two sponsors with ugly schemes amalgamated into one scheme is just moronic, and I’ll be kind and give it a D.

JJ Yeley #23 TraqGear/CoolShirt Toyota CamryGood color scheme, good design, A+.

Jeff Gordon #24 Axalta Throwback Chevy SSIn a year of great throwback schemes, this is one of the best, A+.

Jeff Gordon #24 AARP Member Advantages/Chase Credit Cards Chevy SSGood color scheme, good design, A+.

Jeff Gordon #24 Axalta “It’s Been a Great Ride” Chevy SSWould love to see the throwback scheme at Homestead, but this is a great scheme. A+.

Paul Menard #27 Menard’s/Nebco Chevy SSGood color scheme, good design, A+.

Boris Said #32 SPG Ford FusionGood color scheme, good design, A+.

Boris Said #32 Genesee Beer Ford FusionA great AMC throwback design. A+.

Michael McDonald #32 Draft Demons Ford Fusion-Whoof.  F

Josh Wise #32 Brandeis Machinery Ford Fusion-Take an awful paint scheme, and give it an even worse color scheme, and you will earn an F every single time.

Brian Scott #33 Shore Lodge Chevy SS-Same scheme as last year, same B+ grade.

Cole Whitt #35 KFC Ford FusionGood color scheme, good design, A+.

David Gilliland #38 Florida Lottery Ford Fusion-The color scheme would work without the design, the design would work without the color scheme.  They just don’t work well together. C+

David Gilliland #38 FFA/CSX Ford Fusion-I think the FFA motif is a bit overdone, but the color scheme is good, and the overall design works well too. B+

Landon Cassill #40 Interstate Moving/Precon Chevy SSGood color scheme, good design, A+.

Kyle Larson #42 Coca Cola/Target Chevy SS-Coca Cola doens’t often sponsor a car, but when they do it always looks good, and this is no exception.  A+

Michael Annett #46 Pilot Camo Throwback Chevy SS-This is a bit of a throwback scheme to the design Alan Kulwiki raced in the 1991 Daytona 500.  I like the BDU style too.  I’m gonna ignore the camo -1 letter grade rule and give this car an A+.

AJ Allmendinger #47 Kroger/Better than Bullion Chevy SSGood color scheme, good design, A+.

Justin Allgaier #51 Trademark Chevy SSGood color scheme, good design, A+.

Michael Annett #46 Switch Hitch Chevy SS-Good color scheme, good design, A+.
