By David G. Firestone

First we have four new 2016 schemes…

Kevin Harvick #4 Busch Chevy SS-A mainstay of NASCAR sponsorship, Busch makes its return in 2016, along with Busch Light as the primary sponsor of Kevin Harvick’s car. This design, based on a throwback can is great, and I can’t say anything bad about it. A+

Marin Truex Jr. #78 Furniture Row Toyota CamryNo change A+

Dale Earnhardt Jr. #88 TaxSlayer Chevy SS-The colors scheme is really good, and the design works well. I like the gold designs and door numbers too. A+

Ryan Blaney #21 PPG Automotive Finishes Ford Fusion-Great color scheme, the blue works well, and the paint streaks to the white rear looks really good. A+

Jimmie Johnson #48 Lowe’s Red Vest Chevy SS-When I first heard about this scheme I thought the red would improve the scheme, but it actually takes a B- scheme down to a C-.

Dale Earnhardt Jr.#88 Nationwide/Plenti Chevy SS-I’m not sure if the Plenti designs are meant to be confetti, butterflies, birds, or what, but they take a B+ scheme down to a C+.

Michael McDowell #95 Thrivent Financial/Habitat For Humanity Ford Fusion-The use of gray can be a minefield, but this works well, and the overall design looks good too. A+
