The Driver Suit Blog-Paint Scheme Grades-August 17, 2019

By David G. Firestone

Landon Cassill #00 Creek Enterprises Chevy Camaro-Getting rid of the black on the front would help. I also think that the shade of green could be darkened.  It’s still a good scheme so I’ll give it a B.

Aric Almirola #10 3D Systems Ford Mustang-Both the design and the color scheme are mediocre. I don’t hate them, but I don’t like them. This is getting a middle of the road C.

Ty Dillon #13 Geico/K&L Ready Mix Chevy Camaro-I love the color scheme here, but the design is over done, and it isn’t great. It almost looks like a reversed wave pattern.  Still, I’ve seen much worse, so I’ll give this a B-.

Martin Truex Jr. #19 Auto Owner’s Insurance 500th Start Toyota Camry-It’s a smooth look with a great color scheme, and that will always earn an A.

Paul Menard #21 Motorcraft/Ford Senior Master Technicians Ford Mustang-Black is always a good base color, and I do like the wrench motif. I would like to see a red with black as opposed to black with red. Still, this is a good scheme, so it gets an A

Matt Tifft #36 Meijer Ford Mustang-The color scheme is good, the design scheme is good, and I can’t say anything bad here. A

Darrell Wallace Jr. #43 Victory Junction Throwback Chevy Camaro-Spree was never one of my favorite sponsors. That said, after some time, I do see what they were doing with their scheme. This is a faithful representation of the old Spree scheme, and It works very well. A

Jimmie Johnson #48 Ally Fueling Futures/ Jimmie Johnson Foundation Chevy Camaro-Replacing the rear Ally logo is an improvement. This is a good look, and I can’t say anything bad about it. A

Cody Ware #51 Jacob Companies Ford Mustang-Same scheme as a previous Jacob Companies, same A- grade.

Spencer Boyd #53 Chelle Corporation Ford Mustang-Same scheme as #52 same A- grade.

Garrett Smithley #77 Victory Lane Quick Oil Change/Kendall Oil Chevy Camaro-Same scheme as #15 same A grade.

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.
