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 that owns the Indianapolis Motor Speedway (there has never been a famous "Hoosier"  family in racing).
Best regards,   Ken Massey
