The Driver Suit Blog-Paint Scheme Grades-June 30, 2018

By David G. Firestone

Tomy Drissi #00 GoShare Chevy Camaro-That is a beautiful looking throwback!  I really can’t say anything more than that! A

Trevor Bayne #6 Advocare Rehydrate Ford Fusion-When it comes to this scheme, there is nothing really wrong here, but there isn’t anything right here either.  It’s just a meh scheme, not impressive, not unimpressive.  I’ll give it a C.

Gray Gaulding #23 EarthWater Toyota Camry-Getting rid of the gray really didn’t help this scheme much.  It’s still ugly and over designed, but it’s slightly less ugly and over designed. It has graduated from an F to a D-.

Ryan Newman #31 Granger/Red Cross Chevy Camaro-This color scheme suits the Granger scheme even better than the regular one.  The regular scheme is worth an A, so this scheme will also get an A.

Matt DiBenedetto #32 Anest Iwata Ford Fusion-A good fade with a great color scheme will always earn an A.

Matt DiBenedetto #32 The Hartford Group Ford Fusion-A good fade with a great color scheme will always earn an A.

Chris Buescher #37 Maxwell House Max Chevy SS-This was a great scheme last year, and this scheme is even better.  I love the smooth, simple scheme, and the fact it has a great color scheme makes it worth an A.

David Ragan #38 MDS Patriotic Ford Fusion-Same basic scheme as MDS, same A grade.

Kyle Larson #42 Credit One Patriotic Chevy Camaro-I don’t think the silver is needed here, it should be just red, white, and blue.  I also think that the scheme is a bit over designed for my taste.  It’s not terrible, so I’ll give it a B-.

Chris Cook #51 Shockwave Chevy Camaro-The fade with checkered flag motif works quite well.  Add in a great color scheme, and  you have a bold scheme with a great look. A

Cody Ware #52 ASC Construction/Bubba Burger Chevy Camaro-This is a great motif, it works well, and isn’t over designed.  This looks good. 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.
