Jamie McMurray #1 McDonald’s All American Games Chevy SS-Same scheme as McDonald’s, same A grade.
Denny Hamlin #11 SportClips Toyota Camry–Same scheme as last year, same C- grade.
Clint Bowyer #14 Rush Truck Centers Ford Fusion-It’s a great look! The color scheme works well with the design scheme, and the white hood, roof, and decklid work well too. All in all, it’s an A scheme for sure!
Reed Sorenson #15 VIP Racing Experience Toyota Camry-It’s a clean smooth look with a great color scheme. It’s worth an A.
Kyle Busch #18 Interstate Batteries Toyota Camry–Same scheme as last year, same F grade.
Daniel Suarez #19 Subway Toyota Camry-I like the removal of the white from the sides. It gives the car a much cleaner and smoother look. It’s still a little overdone, but it’s worth an A-.
Paul Menard #27 Menard’s/Jack Links Beef Jerkey Chevy SS-It’s not a bad scheme overall, but the dark red doesn’t work as well with the bright yellow. It looks good, but if the red was a little brighter, the scheme would earn a little more than a B-.
Jeffery Earnhardt #33 Superior Logistics Services Chevy SS–Same scheme as Starter, same A grade.
Jeffery Earnhardt #33 Detail 2U/K1 Speed Chevy SS–Same scheme as Starter, same A grade.
AJ Allmendinger #47 Ralph’s/Checklist/Oscar Meyer Chevy SS–Same scheme as Kroger, same A grade.
AJ Allmendinger #47 Fry’s/Checklist/Velveta Chevy SS–Same scheme as Kroger, same A grade.
Timmy Hill #51 Bubba Burger Chevy SS-Thought the blue could be a little darker, the overall scheme looks good. I like the cutting edge design, and the color works well with the scheme. It earns an A.
Reed Sorenson #55 Toyota Camry–It’s a clean smooth look with a great color scheme. It’s worth an A.
Cole Whitt #72 SoCal Chevy Chevy SS-I REALLY hate that door numbers. Normally this scheme would earn an A, but with the overly distracting #72, it ends up scoring just a B+.
Erik Jones #77 Toyota Service Centers Toyota Camry–Same scheme as 5-Hour Energy, same C- grade.
Corey LaJoie #83 Bubba Burger Toyota Camry-The black flame motif is simple, and it works! It’s a bold look that isn’t overdone! This is one of my favorite schemes so far this year. I give it the A it deserves!
Michael McDowell #95 Leavine Family Surfboards Chevy SS-Designing cars to look like vintage classics can be hit or miss, and this is a hit! The Woody design works well, and the light blue front works well too. A
