Landon Cassill #00 CGS Imaging Chevy Camaro-The color scheme is good, and the stripes look good too. Nothing wrong here! A
Kurt Busch #1 Gearwrench/Monster Energy Chevy Camaro-What kind of grade do you get when the front looks horrific, and the back looks awesome? You get a solid C.
Brad Keselowski #2 Reese/Drawtite Ford Mustang-Same scheme as last year, same A grade.
Austin Dillon #3 Symbicort Chevy Camaro-Same scheme as #31, same C- grade.
Daniel Hemric #8 Bass Pro Shops Chevy Camaro-Orange is finicky, especially this shade of orange. Add in the fact that too much orange was used with a bad design scheme, and you have a bad scheme. It’s not the worst scheme, but it’s worth a C-.
Aric Almirola #10 Smithfield/Shazam Ford Mustang-The Shazam motif is overdone. The dark color works, but the overall scheme is overdone, and mediocre. I’ll give this a B-.
Ryan Blaney #12 Menard’s/Libman Ford Mustang-A definite downgrade from the awesomeness of the 2018 Menard’s template, but this is a decent scheme, so I’ll give it a B.
Clint Bowyer #14 Mobil 1/Rush Truck Stops Ford Mustang-Black with red flames looks awesome, and the car as a whole looks awesome. This gets an A.
Martin Truex Jr. #19 Sirius XM Toyota Camry-Too many designs here. Just because you can add designs does not mean you should. It’s not horrifically bad, but it’s not great. All things considered, this gets a B-.
Michael McDowell #34 A&W Ford Mustang-The wood barrel motif works, as does the creamy foam motif. The two work well together, and the result is an amazing looking A scheme.
Chris Buescher #37 Kroger Speed Up Your Cleanup Chevy Camaro-The color scheme is good, and the stripes look good too. Nothing wrong here! A
David Ragan #38 MDS Ford Mustang-Replacing white with blue doesn’t add or subtract from the B+ this scheme got.
Jeb Burton #52 Muzzy Bowfishing Chevy Camaro-A bad color scheme mixed with a pointlessly over designed car will ALWAYS result in an F.
D.J. Kennington #77 Go-Part Chevy Camaro-The side designs are a little too over designed. Really, that’s my only complaint. Toning down the side designs could bring this scheme up to an A, but this is worth a B+.
Matt DiBenedetto #95 Toyota Express Maintenance Toyota Camry-This color scheme and design scheme aren’t amazing. They are also not awful. They are directly in the middle. So, since they are in the middle, this gets a C.
