The Driver Suit Blog-Paint Scheme Grades-June 17, 2017

By David G. Firestone.

Reed Sorenson#15 Toyota Camry-It’s a smooth look with a good color scheme. I give it an A.

Ryan Newman #31 Velveeta Shells and Cheese Chevy SS-It’s never a good sign when the driver suit looks better than the car. That shells and cheese motif could be a lot better, and the yellow used could be brighter. It’s worth a C-.

Landon Cassill #34 CSX Play It Safe Ford Fusion-Same scheme as last year, same A grade.

Chris Buescher#37 Liberty Tax Service Chevy SS-I like the color scheme here, but think that the car is a tad over designed. The subtle Liberty motif doesn’t really work. Still, it’s not horrible, and I give it a B+.

Cody Ware #51 Clemson Chevy SS-The color scheme is good, and the design scheme is good too. It’s an A scheme for sure.

Derrike Cope #55 Star Com Fiber Chevy SS-Green polka dots didn’t work for Dusty Rhodes, and it doesn’t work here. But the scheme as a whole isn’t horrible, and it’s worth a B-.

Erik Jones #77 GameStop/Cars 3 Toyota Camry-The scheme works well, the color looks good, and the design is good too. It gets the A it deserves.

Martin Truex Jr. #78 5-Hour Energy Toyota Camry-While I still think the car is over designed, it looks much better with the toned down scheme. I’ll give it a B+, still room for improvement, but it’s much better.

Michael McDowell #95 FDNY Foundation Chevy SS-It’s a smooth look with a good color scheme. I give it an A.

I'm just a normal guy who collects race-worn driver suits, helmets, sheet metal, and other race-worn items. I will use this blog to help collectors, and race fans alike understand the various aspects of driver suits and helmets, and commentate on paint schemes.
