By David G. Firestone

Ross Chastain #1 Worldwide Express Chevy Camaro-It’s much too over designed, and the shades of blue don’t work. F

Ross Chastain #1 Pitbull Tour Chevy Camaro-I love the color scheme, but I hate the design scheme, so this gets a C.

Kyle Larson #5 Hendrickcars.com Throwback Chevy Camaro-Another great throwback that could win Throwback of the Year. This is a great and classic look. A

Aric Almirola #10 Smithfield/Weis Ford Mustang-The new designs take the A- scheme down to a B+ because they are a bit overdone.

Denny Hamlin #11 FedEx Small Business Toyota Camry-I think the blue is a tad over done, but otherwise, this is a great scheme. A-

Ryan Blaney #12 Menard’s/Jack Links Beef Jerky Ford Mustang-Same scheme as last year, same A grade.

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.
