The Driver Suit Blog-Paint Scheme Grades-October 3, 2020

By David G. Firestone

Austin Dillon #3 DOWFROST Chevy Camaro-I like the frost motif here, and I think the car has a great overall look. A

Josh Bilicki #7 Insurance King Chevy Camaro-Not a bad scheme at all.  The design looks good, and the color is good. A

Tyler Reddick #8 Cat Mining Chevy Camaro-This scheme has a great color scheme, and it has a great design scheme, so it gets an A.

Aric Almirola #10 Ford Mustang-My only complaint is that the white and black thin stripes aren’t really needed, and the car would look smoother as a result. A-

Matt DiBenedetto #21 Menard’s/Duracel Ford Mustang-Same scheme as last year, same A grade.

Corey LaJoie #32 OneNation Coffee Ford Mustang-Metallic silver works really well here, and the smooth design looks really good. A

Ricky Stenhouse Jr. #47 Hungry Jack Chevy Camaro-You can’t go wrong with pancakes on the rear, and the rest of the car has a good look, so I’ll give this an A.

Jimmie Johnson #48 Ally Financial Chevy Camaro-Teal and black is not a great combo, and the blue doesn’t work either. I would like the design a lot more if it wasn’t attached to this scheme. C

Chad Finchum #49 Toyota Camry-Same scheme as #66, same A grade.

Joey Gase #51 Nevada Donate Life Ford Mustang-It’s a smooth look, with a great color scheme, and that will always earn an A.

Josh Bilicki #53 Dollar Loan Center Ford Mustang-It’s a smooth look, with a great color scheme, and that will always earn an A.

Daniel Suarez #96 Team USA Toyota Camry-I don’t like patriotic motifs that don’t fully use colors. If the silver was replaced by red, this would work a lot better. 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.
