Austin Cindric #2 Keystone Light Ford Mustang-Same scheme as last year, same A grade.
Corey LaJoie #7 TD Bank Chevy Camaro-The white is wholly pointless, the car looks awful. If the car was green or red this would be an A, but this is a C.
Kyle Busch #8 Thorntons Chevy Camaro-Same scheme as last year, same C grade.
Ryan Blaney #12 Menards/Wrangler Ford Mustang-Same scheme as last year, same A grade.
Chase Briscoe #14 Ford Performance Racing School Ford Mustang-Same scheme as last year, same A grade.
Chris Buescher #17 Fastenal Ford Mustang-Reversing the colors really works here. The car has a great look, and I think this is amazing! A
Bubba Wallace #23 Columbia Sportswear Toyota Camry-I like the water motif, it works surprising well for race cars. The black rear looks good, it isn’t over done. This gets an A.
Michael McDowell #34 Fr8 Auctions Throwback Ford Mustang-Yet another contender for best paint scheme of the year! I loved the old Mark Martin Folgers Coffee scheme from back in the day, and I love this now! This gets an A.
Todd Gilliland #38 Boot Barn Ford Mustang-Getting rid of the paint chips would work much better, but it isn’t awful so this gets a B.
Ricky Stenhouse Jr. #47 Coke Zero Chevy Camaro-Not a bad look, but the black is definitely a better look. A-
Daniel Suarez #99 Trackhouse Motorplex Chevy Camaro-I like the black and purple, but holy hell is this over designed! I can’t give this anything but a D, so I won’t.
