You really should delete the
following from your "Airplanes Museums in Indiana" page:
"Indiana is nicknamed the Hoosier
State after the famous Hoosier family in racing"
I was born and live in Indiana.
There is no widely accepted theory as to the source of the term "Hoosier"
(but a lot of guesses). However, I do know that the only "famous
Hoosier family in racing" in Indiana would be the "Hulman" family
owns the Indianapolis Motor Speedway (there has never been a famous "Hoosier"
family in racing).
