By David G. Firestone

Ross Chastain #1 Moose Fraternity Chevy Camaro-I like this, it’s a great look, and the color scheme works, so this gets an A.

Ross Chastain #1 Jockey Chevy Camaro-This is a great look, and I can’t complain. A

Austin Cindric #2 Menard’s/Sylvania Ford Mustang-Same scheme as last year, same A grade.

Kevin Harvick #4 Rheem “Chasing a Cure” Throwback Ford Mustang-Not only is this not a faithful scheme, its also a Pinkwashing scheme. F

Corey LaJoie #7 RAZE Energy Chevy Camaro-This is the worst color combo I have seen in a long time. Add in a horrible design, and you have an F scheme.

Corey LaJoie #7 Staking Pennies Throwback Chevy Camaro-This is a very faithful replica of a unique car. It looks good, and gets an A.

Chase Elliott #9 NAPA Throwback Chevy Camaro-I like throwbacks, but this isn’t as accurate, and the original one isn’t great. Still, it’s not terrible, so I give it a B.

Aric Almirola #10 Smithfield/iHop Ford Mustang-The changes don’t add or subtract from the overall scheme, so it stays at a C scheme.

Chase Briscoe #14 Mahindra Tractors Throwback Ford Mustang-This is a scheme that should have been on a stock car, but it wasn’t. It’s also a faithful replica, so it gets an A.

David Ragan #15 Envision Ford Mustang-Too many colors, too many designs, looks awful, gets an F.

Harrison Burton #21 DEX Imaging Throwback Ford Mustang-I think the original was a little overdone, but this is a faithful replica, so this gets an A-.

Joey Logano #22 Shell/Autotrader Ford Mustang-Same scheme as Shell/Pennzoil, same A grade.

William Byron #24 AXALTA Throwback Chevy Camaro-This is a great scheme, it has a great look, and it gets an A.

Cole Custer #41 Feeding America/Wow Wow Ford Mustang-Same scheme as last year, same A grade.

Cole Custer #41 HaasTooling.com Throwback Ford Mustang-While it’s a faithful replica, I did think the original was over designed, so I’ll give this an A-

Greg Biffle #44 Morehouse College Chevy Camaro-This is a good look, with a great color scheme, and that will always earn an A.

Noah Gragson #62 Wendy’s Chevy Camaro-I think that the blue and white section is a tad over done, so this gets an A-

BJ McLeod #78 Motorsport Games Ford Mustang-The changes don’t add or subtract from the overall scheme, so it stays at a F scheme.
