The Driver Suit Blog-Paint Scheme Grades-September 21, 2019

By David G. Firestone

Landon Cassill #00 William Hill Sports Book/Sahara Las Vegas Chevy Camaro-The stripe is pointless, and it is visually distracting. It’s not a bad scheme, and I’ll give it a B.

Landon Cassill #00 University of Richmond Chevy Camaro-I love this look. Sure it’s a Spider Man based design, but it looks great. A

Chase Elliot #9 Hooters Pink Chevy Camaro-Pinkwashing is an automatic F.

Chase Elliot #9 NAPA Filters Chevy Camaro-I really like this scheme. The color works well, the lack of white works well, the design is great, and I can’t say anything bad about this. A

Erik Jones #20 Crafstman/Gas Monkey Toyota Camry-Same scheme as Craftsman, same A grade.

Paul Menard #21 Menard’s/Monster Ford Mustang-This new Menard’s template works well with black. This is a great look, and it earns an A.

Chris Buescher #37 Natural Light Seltzer Chevy Camaro-White numbers on a white background isn’t a bad look, but here it just looks odd. I’m not a fan of the look. Still it’s not awful, so it gets a B.

Alex Bowman #88 Nationwide Fan-Designed Chevy Camaro-Calling this an ugly, over designed mess would be a complement. This is the worst scheme I have seen in some time. I can’t give this less than an F.

Matt DiBenedetto #95 Barstool Sports Toyota Camry-Not a bad scheme at all. 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.
