Austin Dillon #3 Dow/StemAmbasadors Chevy SS-Same scheme as Dow, same B+ grade.
Danica Patrick #10 Nature’s Bakery/Fox Sports Go Chevy SS-New scheme for 2016, same as Nature’s Bakery, but with Fox Sports Go on quarter panels. A+
Joey Logano #22 Shell Throwback Chevy SS-I didn’t really like this scheme the first time around, and the lack of accuracy in terms of the Pennzoil logos takes it from a B+ down to a B-
David Ragan #23 Weaver Media Toyota Camry– While I do like the color scheme and paper motif, I think they overdid the paper motif. I’m willing to give it a B+, since it is a decent scheme.
Ryan Newman #31 Kalahari Resorts Chevy SS-The color scheme is good, but the design scheme is horrid. The background color is good, but the stripes up the sides are awful, and the needless addition of red on the stripes doesn’t do the scheme a lot of favors. The good and the bad average out to give this scheme a C-.
Jeb Burton #32 Rocky Ridge Custom Trucks Ford Fusion-Not the best scheme I’ve seen, but the new mountain design is a much needed improvement on the old design. I give it a B+
Jeffery Earnhardt #32 Can Am Ford Fusion-This is a much needed improvement over the old scheme. It looks great, and looks amazing. It has great color and designs schemes, and has earned an A+.
Brian Scott #44 Medallion Bank Ford Fusion-One of the worst schemes from last year is now one of the best schemes this year. I like the shade of yellow they used, and the checkered flag pattern looks really good too. I give it an A+
AJ Allmendinger #47 Bush’s Grilling Beans Chevy SS-Same scheme as last year, same A grade.
Ty Dillon #95 BVT/Blake’s Snow Shack Chevy SS-The white stripes don’t look good, and the Blake’s logo contrasts with the design, and looks forced on. Still, it’s not that bad of a scheme, so I’ll give it a B+.
Cole Whitt #98 Carolina Skiff/Fun Chaser Chevy SS-No complaints about this one! Great color and design schemes will always earn an A+.
