The Driver Suit Blog-Paint Scheme Grades-May 29, 2021

By David G. Firestone

Quin Houff #00 Mane ‘n Tail Chevy Camaro-These two motifs don’t really work, and they don’t look good, so they get an F.

Brad Keselowski #2 Thomas Built Buses Ford Mustang-Same scheme as Freightliner, same A- grade.

Austin Dillon #3 Workrise Chevy Camaro-I like the color scheme, and the design scheme isn’t over done, so this gets an A.

Austin Dillon #3 Dow Patriotic Chevy Camaro-I think this is a little over designed, and I think the red hood and roof aren’t needed. Still, this works, so I’ll give it an A.

Kevin Harvick #4 Ford Mustang-Metallic gold is a great look, and the dollar motif works well too. A

Kyle Larson #5 MetroTech Chevy Camaro-I like the color scheme, but the car is pointlessly over designed. Too many distracting elements here. D

James Davison #15 Skip Barber Racing School Chevy Camaro-The color scheme here is great, the design is solid, and works well, so I can’t give this anything but an A.

Bubba Wallace #23 DraftKings Toyota Camry-The gray is pointless, but other than that, this is a solid scheme. A-

Bubba Wallace #23 DoorDash DashPass Toyota Camry-A solid scheme with a unique color scheme will earn an A grade.

William Byron #24 Liberty University Patriotic Chevy Camaro-Same scheme as Freightliner, same B+ grade.

Michael McDowell #34 Outwest Express Ford Mustang-I like the color scheme, and the design scheme is bold, yet simple. This is a great scheme! A

Ricky Stenhouse Jr. #47 Kroger/Louisiana Hot Sauce Chevy Camaro-This template is awful when the two sponsors work together. Here, the Louisiana Hot Sauce scheme is so different to the Kroger scheme, that is just looks horrible. F

Alex Bowman #48 Ally Financial Patriotic Chevy Camaro-It’s not over designed, and it has an amazing look to it. This is also a good look if it were a throwback. A

Josh Bilicki #52 Junction Fuels Chevy Camaro-I like the color scheme, and the design scheme is bold, yet simple. This is a great scheme! A

Justin Haley #77 Fraternal Order of Eagles Chevy Camaro-I think the black and yellow scheme works better, but this is a solid scheme that earns an 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.
