By David G. Firestone

Brad Keselowski #6 Esperion Therapeutics Ford Mustang-Good look, not over designed, good color scheme. A

Chase Elliott #9 NAPA Chevy Camaro-Adding the blue looks great, and the stripes work better too. A

Chris Buescher #17 Esperion Therapeutics Ford Mustang-Same scheme as #6, same A grade.

William Byron #24 RAPTOR Chevy Camaro-Like last year, adding the white takes away from a great scheme, and takes it from an A to a B+ because it looks so out of space

Michael McDowell #34 Fr8 Auctions Ford Mustang-Same scheme as last year, same A grade.

Alex Bowman #48 Ally Financial Day Chevy Camaro-It’s a downgrade. The smooth looking scheme has been replaced by a cluttered mess. I can say that the color scheme is good, but this gets a D.

Alex Bowman #48 Ally Financial Night Chevy Camaro-Changing from white to black does help, but only to take the grade from a D to a C.

BJ McLeod #78 B’laster Ford Mustang-Same scheme as last year, same D- grade.

Jimmie Johnson #84 Carvana Chevy Camaro-I like the metallic blue, the stripes have a good color, and they are not over designed. A
