The Driver Suit Blog-Paint Scheme Grades-March 11, 2023

By David G. Firestone

Brad Keselowski #6 Fastenal Ford Mustang-The blue lettering is hard to see without a black outline, and that takes this scheme from an A to an A-

Corey LaJoie #7 EnviroXstream Chevy Camaro-I like the shades of blue, but this isn’t a good look. D

Corey LaJoie #7 Bluegrass Vacations Chevy Camaro-The green looks awful, and the car is somewhat over designed. I give this a C-.

Ryan Blaney #12 Menard’s/Pennzoil Ford Mustang-The newer black numbers stand out more, and have a bolder look. This gets an A.

J.J. Yeley #15 OTR Employment Service Ford Mustang-I like the color scheme, but the car is very cluttered at points, and the odd X logo on the side is confusing. C

Joey Logano #22 Pennzoil Ford Mustang-This takes me back to the Steve Park era Pennzoil scheme, which was a great scheme, and a great look! A

Bubba Wallace #23 Columbia Sportswear Chevy Camaro-This is a hell of an upgrade from last year’s multi-colored pastel mess. This is a great look, and gets an A.

Todd Gilliland #38 Ruedbusch Development and Construction Ford Mustang-The cleaner look makes for a better look, and goes from a B+ to an A.

Tyler Reddick #45 The Beast Unleashed Toyota Camry-The giant eye in a sea of black is an amazing look, and it reminds me of of the horror game Iron Lung. This is worth an A.

Ricky Stenhouse Jr. #47 Coke Zero Chevy Camaro-The lack of white really works here, and the car has a bold and smooth look. A

BJ McLeod #78 Hartford Gold Ford Mustang-A smooth look with a great color scheme will ALWAYS earn 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.
