Kurt Busch #1 Advent Health Chevy Camaro-It’s an ugly, over designed mess, and the color scheme is awful. I give this an F.
Kyle Larson #5 Hendrickcars.com Chevy Camaro-Same scheme as last year, same A grade.
Denny Hamlin #11 FedEx Toyota Camry-I don’t like the off-center design on the sides, but I do like the overall design as well as the fade. The good and the bad cancel each other out, and this gets a C.
Ryan Blaney #12 Menard’s/Peak Ford Mustang-Same scheme as last year, same B+ grade.
Garrett Smithley #13 Trophy Tractor Ford Mustang-Not even a good color scheme can save this disaster from an F grade. This might be one of the worst schemes I have ever seen.
Kaz Grala #16 Hyper Ice Chevy Camaro-I think that the black is over designed a bit, but it isn’t terrible. This gets an A-
Michael McDowell #34 Love’s Truck Stops Ford Mustang-Same scheme as last year, same A grade.
David Ragan #36 Select Blinds Ford Mustang-Same scheme as last year, same B grade.
Ryan Preece #37 Cottonelle Chevy Camaro-Same scheme as last year, same C grade.
Ross Chastain #42 Clover Chevy Camaro-Same scheme as last year, same A grade.
Cody Ware #51 Nurtec ODT Chevy Camaro-I love the fade of the stripe, and the blue is really good too. The car has a smooth and bold scheme, and this gets an A.
Joey Gase #53 Page Construction Ford Mustang–New scheme for 2021, black, with green and teal stripe. B+
I don’t like the shade of green used, it needs to be darker. Also, the teal is needless. Still, it’s a decent scheme, so it gets a B+
Timmy Hill #66 VSI Racing Ford Mustang-The only thing keeping this scheme above an F grade is the color scheme. Other than that, this is an F scheme.
Jamie McMurray #77 Advent Health Chevy Camaro-A good color scheme balanced by a bad color scheme will always earn a C.
