The Driver Suit Blog-Paint Scheme Grades-April 20, 2019

By David G. Firestone

Kevin Harvick #4 Busch Plaid Ford Mustang-Same scheme as last year, same A grade.

Ryan Newman #6 Roush Performance/Acorns Ford Mustang-Same scheme as last year, same A grade.

Aric Almirola #10 Smithfield Get Grilling America Ford Mustang-Same scheme as last year, same A grade.

Paul Menard #21 Menard’s/Maytag Ford Mustang-Darker colors work well with the new Menard’s template, and this is a good example. The dark blue works well here, so I give this an A.

Matt Tift #36 The Pete Store Ford Mustang-It’s a great color scheme, but it is very over designed. I don’t like the design, but it does work with the color scheme. I’ll give this a B-.

Bayley Currey #52 Steakhouse Elite Chevy Camaro-The two changes to the new scheme made a huge improvement. The new scheme looks cleaner, and smoother, and is a great look. I’ll give this an A

Joey Gase #66 Sam Bass Tribute Toyota Camry-Normally, I’d give this an F. But because this is to honor the greatest NASCAR artists of all time, I’ll give this a C. It’s still over designed, but it is a fitting tribute.

Matt DiBenedetto #95 Thank You Toyota 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.

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.
