The Driver Suit Blog-Paint Scheme Grades-November 5, 2016

By David G. Firestone

Brad Keselowski #2 Alliance Ford Fusion-Templates are very vulnerable to color schemes. In this case, the color scheme works well with the template, the whole car looks good, and earns an A.

Trevor Bayne #6 Advocare/SEAL Legacy Foundation Ford Fusion-I like the beach motif, and the color scheme is good. I think that the sand could be a little more prominent. Still, it a solid B+ scheme.

Regan Smith #7 Golden Coral Chevy SS-Black with yellow accents is a very underrated scheme, and the smooth design works very well. A

Ryan Blaney #21 BorgWarner Ford Fusion-A good shade of blue, with a great design scheme will always earn an A.

Joey Logano #22 AAA Mosaic Ford Fusion-The photo mosaic scheme didn’t work with Pennzoil, and it doesn’t work here. I get what they are trying to do, but it looks awful. I give it an F

Bobby Labonte #32 Visrone RV Ford Fusion-It’s a good scheme, with a great color scheme, and a great design scheme. A

Landon Cassill #38 A&W Ford Fusion-Same scheme as #34 A&W, same A grade.

Brian Scott #44 Red Cross Ford Fusion-Maybe it’s just me, but I’m thinking that a Red Cross sponsored race car should be…oh I don’t know…RED? Why in the world would they choose green? It makes no sense. Granted it is a good design scheme, but it has a bad shade of green, where red would bring it up to an A. With the green, it’s a C-

Reed Sorenson #55 Trump/Pence Toyota Camry-I don’t want to discuss politics here, or anywhere on my website. This isn’t about politics, it’s about paint schemes. The patriotic motif works well, it’s always a great color scheme, and the car looks good. A

Matt DiBenedetto #83 JAS Toyota Camry-The color scheme is great, but the whole design is overdone, and it’s not a good look. If the stripes in the blue were gone, I might give it a higher grade. With all things considered, it’s a C- scheme at best.

Matt DiBenedetto #93 EJ Wade Construction Toyota Camry-Same scheme as #83 EJ Wade, same B+ grade.
