The Driver Suit Blog-Paint Scheme Grades-September 10, 2022

By David G. Firestone

Kevin Harvick #4 Busch Light Throwback Ford Mustang-I like the old Busch Light 1990’s cans, and this is a good look. A

Chase Elliott #9 NAPA Childhood Cancer Awareness Month Chevy Camaro-I like this look, you can’t go wrong with puppies, and the car has a great color scheme. A

Denny Hamlin #11 Acumatica Toyota Camry-The light blue isn’t really needed, and there is a bit too much design. It’s not bad, so this gets a B+

Chase Briscoe #14 Lady in Black Ford Mustang-The black is a MASSIVE improvement over the blue. This looks great. A

Noah Gragson #16 Ed Morse Automotive Group Chevy Camaro-It’s a horrifically ugly over designed mess, and that will always earn an F.

Harrison Burton #21 Motorcraft/Quick Lane Tried and True Since ‘72 Ford Mustang-It’s a smooth look, with a great color scheme, and that will always earn an A.

Todd Gilliland #38 Southeastern Equipment and Supply Ford Mustang-Getting rid of the purple and light green would make this work. A meh design with a meh paint scheme gets a C.

Ty Dillon #42 EG3 Technologies Chevy Camaro-I don’t like the shade of light blue, and the stripes aren’t needed. It’s OK, but not good. C

Bubba Wallace #45 Root Insurance Toyota Camry-Toning down the stripes would earn this an A, but with the stripes, this gets a B.

B.J. McLeod #78 Boss Truck Stops Ford Mustang-The yellow stripes are a bit over done, other than that, this is good. A-

Daniel Suárez #99 Jockey Chevy Camaro-Same scheme as #1, 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.
