The Driver Suit Blog-Paint Scheme Grades-October 23, 2021

By David G. Firestone

Austin Dillon #3 Bass Pro Shops/Tracker Off Road Flannel Chevy Camaro-I think this would be perfect with the flannel motif across the whole car, but this is still great. A

Tyler Reddick #8 CC Ready Mix/Clark Pipeline Service Chevy Camaro-Any scheme that reminds me of the old Dale Earnhardt Sr. Goodwrench Monte Carlo is great! A

Aric Almirola #10 Smithfield/Walk-On’s Sports Bistreaux Ford Mustang-Normally, I like when when a car is cleaned up, but this is a rare downgrade. The cleaned up sides look odd. It’s not awful, so I’ll give it a B+.

Denny Hamlin #11 Craftsman Toyota Camry-Same scheme as #20, same C grade.

Chris Buescher #17 Fastenal Pink Ford Mustang-Pinkwashing is an automatic F.

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

Bubba Wallace #23 Columbia Omni-Heat Infinity Toyota Camry-I like this look, it’s bold, and has a great color scheme. A

Ryan Preece #37 Little Hug Fruit Barrels Chevy Camaro-The blue on the rear is pointless, and it takes away from the scheme as a whole. Other than that, this is a great scheme. A-

Ross Chastain #42 Chevrolet Accessories Chevy Camaro-It’s a smooth look, with a great color scheme, and that will always earn an A.

Josh Bilicki #52 Junction Fuels Ford Mustang-This is a great look, very well designed, and a great color scheme. A

Joey Gase #53 Branson’s Nantucket Chevy Camaro-This is a great look, and the car isn’t over designed. A

David Starr #66 Conectus/Kyocera Ford Mustang-The car is a tad too over designed, and the green, red, and black are pointless. All things considered, this gets a B-

Justin Haley #77 Shavelogic Chevy Camaro-A major downgrade from the amazing Shavelogic scheme from earlier this year. Good color scheme, but way too over designed. C

Daniel Suarez #99 Freeway Insurance Chevy Camaro-Good color scheme here, but the curved stripes are way too over designed. I’ll give this 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.
