Landon Cassill #00 Mane ‘n Tall Chevy Camaro-The color scheme isn’t great to begin with, and when you add in a design scheme that clashes with the color scheme, it’s not good. It’s a car that clashes with itself. F
Landon Cassill #00 StarCom Fiber Throwback Chevy Camaro-The metallic gold Miller High Life scheme is a great scheme, and this very faithful representation is a great look! I can’t say anything bad about this scheme. A
Austin Dillon #3 Dow We Are Innovators Chevy Camaro-Overall, it’s a great scheme with a great color scheme, and a great look. A
Matt Kenseth #6 Roush Performance Ford Fusion-Same scheme as last year, same A grade.
Garrett Smithley #7 Victory Lane Oil Change Chevy Camaro-Black replacing white really works here! The scheme still looks great, and the black fits the scheme more than white does. A
Clint Bowyer #14 Rush Truck Stops/Cummins Ford Fusion-Same scheme as Rush’s Truck Stops, same A grade.
Clint Bowyer #14 Cummins/Rush Truck Stops Ford Fusion-The scheme is a smooth classic look with a great color scheme. It looks really great. Black and white is a great look for a car. All things considered, I give it an A.
Ross Chastain #15 Solomon Plumbing Chevy Camaro-A good smooth look with a great color scheme will always earn an A.
Ricky Stenhouse Jr. #17 John Deere Ford Fusion-Yellow and green can be a very difficult scheme to work with on a race car. This scheme worked well in 1997, and this throwback knocks it out of the park. It looks great, and I give it an A.
Erik Jones #20 Doosan Machine Tools Toyota Camry-It’s a great design scheme, but the light blue does not work with the rest of the scheme. If the blue were somewhat darker, it might work. Still, it’s not a bad scheme, so, all things considered, I give it a B-.
Erik Jones #20 SportClips Throwback Toyota Camry-The RE/MAX look from 1997 is a great scheme. It has a great color scheme and design scheme. I also love the 1990’s Upper Deck based logo on the hood. All things considered, this gets an A
Paul Menard #21 Earn While You Learn/NewFordTech.com Ford Fusion-Same scheme as Motorcraft, same A grade.
Matt DiBenedetto #32 Harvest Investments Ford Fusion-It’s a great design scheme with a solid color scheme, and that will always earn an A.
Chris Buescher #37 Slim Jim Chevy Camaro-The sublimated designs, and Slim Jims on sides is a little over done. It could have been a solid A scheme, but these minor touches take it down to an A-.
David Ragan #38 Louis Kemp Crab Delights Ford Fusion-The orange crab scheme works well, and the blue works well with the rest of the scheme. It just works well. A
BJ McLeod #51 Jacob Companies Chevy Camaro-Stripes on a race car are like Tabasco sauce in a Bloody Mary…too much is a bad thing. In this case, less really would have been more. It’s still not terrible, so I’ll give it an A-.
Timmy Hill #66 Rewards.com Chevy Camaro-The shades of green and blue aren’t great, and the Rewards logos don’t help. It’s a good design scheme, but B-
Kasey Kahne #95 Drumont Jets Throwback Chevy Camaro-The Dodge scheme was a great scheme, and this is a faithful replica of that scheme. This scheme looks great. A
Derrike Cope #99 StarCom/Superior Essex Chevy Camaro-Black is a great scheme for a race car, and the stripe with the fade works well too. This is a great scheme with a smooth look. A
Derrike Cope #99 Bojangles Chevy Camaro-Another great throwback, and this one is very well executed. The color scheme and design scheme work well, and this car has a great look. A
