"The Friday Setup" will be a preview of the upcoming races and the schedule of the weekend events (practice and qualifications) leading up to race day. Also it will include other forms of rambling about the upcoming race (and the overall state of IndyCar) by yours truly, because I got to somehow bring up the word-count so SBNation will allow the posting of this article/schedule so you can see it. Or something like that.
Not going to go over much this week. Seriously, this video is all you need...
Toronto, the Higgs boson of DERP. Or perhaps more accurately Toronto is an example of DERP entropy, due to the amount of DERP either increasing or remaining constant in a closed system; in this case a closed street circuit. Disorder is more probable than order, especially in Toronto.
DERP = 1 + Toronto * Takuma Sato + EJ Viso - Lotus + (1 * number of raindrops) * Canadian drivers not named Paul Tracy + (1 * Paul Tracy) - crapwagon
Enough Stephen Hawking gibberish. That's the last time I read a story on physics discoveries before an IndyCar race weekend, on to business.

Of course being this is the Canadian swing of the schedule I'm posting the crazy Canadians at Epic Meal Time. What's more Canadian than a meat building with a bacon roof...and filled with poutine?
