The Driver Suit Blog-Paint Scheme Grades-April 1, 2023

By David G. Firestone

Kevin Harvick #4 Mobil 1 Ford Mustang-It’s a smooth look, with a great color scheme, and that will ALWAYS earn an A.

Brad Keselowski #6 Wyndham Rewards Ford Mustang-Same scheme as last year, same A grade.

Corey LaJoie #7 OpTic Gaming Chevy Camaro-The paint splatter motif could be better, but the giant logo along with it is just horrible, and I can’t give this higher than an F.

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

Bubba Wallace #23 MoneyLion Toyota Camry-This is even worse than last year, and that fade helps NOTHING! F

Noah Gragson #42 Black Riffle Coffee Resort Chevy Camaro-The small stripes alone would get an A, but this looks so awful, it gets taken down to a C.

Ricky Stenhouse Jr. #47 Kroger/Blue Buffalo Chevy Camaro-I get the use of blue, but there are too many blues here. Add in that the front is a bit over designed, and this gets a C.

Cody Ware #51 Public SQ Ford Mustang-If the black on the front was replaced with the fade, this would get an A, it’s still good enough to get a B+

Jimmie Johnson #84 Club Wyndham Chevy Camaro-It’s a smooth look, not over designed, and it gets an A.

Daniel Suarez #99 Quaker State Chevy Camaro-This color scheme works a little better than the Freeway Insurance color scheme. B-

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.
