The Third Annual Coolest Thing Made in Indiana competition celebrates the state’s long manufacturing history. Entered companies faced off in a single-elimination bracket format with winners chosen through public fan voting. Each winner advanced to the next round until we reached the coveted final four makers and an ultimate Coolest Thing Made in Indiana champion. The 2023 field includes 47 Hoosier makers of all kinds of things – both familiar and emergent. For fairness, the matchups were generated via an online randomizer; due to the number of entrants, some entrants received byes to the second round.
Marshall County’s own Hoosier Racing Tire has entered the contest and out of 47 initial entries, they have made it to the Sweet 16. Hoosier Racing Tire is excited to go even further and make it to the Elite 8 next week, but they need the community’s help.

Hoosier Racing Tire kindly asks that you take a couple of minutes and vote to help them bring recognition to the local community by putting Hoosier Racing Tire in Plymouth on the map for the Coolest Thing Made in Indiana.
