The Driver Suit Blog-Paint Scheme Grades-April 17, 2021

By David G. Firestone

Quin Houff #00 Gardner Marsh Chevy Camaro-The stripes are very over done. The color scheme is good, so I’ll give it a B+

Brad Keselowski #2 Freightliner Ford Mustang-My only complaint here is that the front stripes are pointless. Other than that, this is a great scheme. A-

Austin Dillon #3 American Ethanol Chevy Camaro-It’s still a good scheme, but the black is a downgrade, so this goes from an A to an A-.

Kevin Harvick #4 Busch NA Ford Mustang-The red and white designs are horrid, and they look out of place when compared with the rest of the scheme. Still, it’s not horrific, so I’ll give it a C.

Corey LaJoie #7 Ark.io Chevy Camaro-Ark.io loves to pointlessly over design their race cars, and this example is no different. There is nothing good I can say, so this gets an F.

Aric Almirola #10 Smithfield Anytime Favorites Ford Mustang-This is a great scheme, the color and fade work well, and the car looks great! A

Chase Briscoe #14 Rush’s Truck Stops Ford Mustang-Same scheme as last year, same A grade.

James Davison #15 Nurtec ODT Military Salutes Program Navy Chevy Camaro-I like the color scheme, but the car is a tad over designed. The photo motif is not a good look, but it’s a passable scheme, so I’ll give it a C.

James Davison #15 Jacob Companies Chevy Camaro-Same scheme as #52, same B grade.

Kyle Busch #18 Snickers Peanut Brownie Toyota Camry-It’s a smooth look, that isn’t over designed, and that will always earn an A.

Christopher Bell #20 Toyota Toyota Camry-There is no real change in terms of grade. It’s still an A- scheme.

Joey Logano #22 Shell/Pennzoil Throwback Ford Mustang-This is a great throwback! I love the look the car has, and it’s smooth. A

Bubba Wallace #23 DoorDash Toyota Camry-I actually like this scheme a little more than the other DoorDash scheme. I think this works well, and it gets an A.

Joey Gase #28 Register Me Ford Mustang-I love a good, faithful throwback, and this is a good, faithful throwback. I miss Texaco as a sponsor, and this brings back memories. This gets an A.

Ryan Preece #37 Louisiana Hot Sauce Chevy Camaro-The yellow on the rear is pointless, and visually distracting. I think it takes away from a great scheme. A-

Anthony Alfredo #38 iRacing Ford Mustang-This reminds me of the the Hendrickcars scheme, which I like, and it is a great look. A

Ricky Stenhouse Jr. #47 Kroger/Crest Chevy Camaro-This is just a meh template, and it creates meh schemes. C

Garrett Smithley #51 Nurtec ODT Military Salutes Program Air Force Chevy Camaro-I like the color scheme, but the car is a tad over designed. The photo motif is not a good look, but it’s a passable scheme, so I’ll give it a C.

Josh Bilicki #52 Insurance King Ford Mustang-Everything I said about Brad Keselowski’s Freightliner scheme applies here. The front stripes are pointless. Other than that, this is a great scheme. A-

Josh Bilicki #52 Nurtec ODT Military Salutes Program Army Ford Mustang-I like the color scheme, but the car is a tad over designed. The photo motif is not a good look, but it’s a passable scheme, so I’ll give it a C.

JJ Yeley #53 Fat Boy Ice Cream Chevy Camaro-Same scheme as last year, same A grade.

JJ Yeley #53 Nurtec ODT Military Salutes Program Marines Chevy Camaro-I like the color scheme, but the car is a tad over designed. The photo motif is not a good look, but it’s a passable scheme, so I’ll give it a C.

BJ McLeod #78 CorvetteParts.net Ford Mustang-It’s a slightly over designed scheme, with a mediocre color scheme. All things considered, this gets a C-
