The Driver Suit Blog-Paint Scheme Grades-January 28, 2017

By David G. Firestone

Kevin Harvick #4 Busch Light Ford Fusion-Same basic scheme as Busch, same A grade.

Trevor Bayne #6 Advocare Ford Fusion-The white looks good, and the multi-colored checks look decent as well. All in all, I give it an A.

Denny Hamlin #11 FedEx Toyota Camry-The lighter blue as a background is decent, but the paintbrush design doesn’t work as well. It’s not horrible, but it’s not great. I’ll give it a B-.

Ricky Stenhouse Jr. #17 Fastenal Ford Fusion-Same scheme as last year, same A grade.

Kyle Busch #18 M&M’s Toyota Camry-Same basic scheme as last year, same A grade.

Daniel Suarez #19 Stanley Toyota Camry-Same basic scheme as last year, same B+ grade.

Matt Kenseth #20 DeWalt/Flexwolt Toyota CamryThe stripes up the sides and hood works very well. It’s bold, but not overdone. Add in a good color scheme, and you have an A scheme.

Joey Logano #22 AAA of Southern California Ford Fusion–Same basic scheme as last year, same D grade.

Paul Menard #27 Menard’s/Peak Chevy SS-While colors can affect how a template looks, the Peak blue works well here, and the scheme looks good. A

Landon Cassill #34 Love’s Truck Stops Ford Fusion-Same basic scheme as last year, same A grade.

Kyle Larson #42 Credit One Chevy SS-Same basic scheme as last year, same F grade.

AJ Allmendinger #47 Kroger/Stouffers/Cheez It’s Chevy SS-The curved stripes around the door number are a definite downgrade from last year. They are ugly, and overdone. Still the car as a whole is decent, and the scheme gets a B+.

Martin Truex Jr. #78 Auto Owner’s Insurance Toyota Camry-Same basic scheme as last year, same A grade.

Michael McDowell #95 K-LOVE Chevy SS-The shorter stripes work very well, and the car as a whole has a great look. Add in a good color scheme, and you have an A scheme.

DJ Kennington #96 Lordco Toyota Camry-The color scheme could work, or the design scheme could work. The color and design schems together don’t work that well. Change one or the other, and the scheme might be higher than a C-.
