Mega Nitro … One of the Newest Mega Race Trucks On The Scene

Jason Linden isn’t known for running in the Mega Truck Class, but he hopes all that will change soon. Two years in the making and Mega Nitro was born. Built completely by Linden Racing, the build took a little longer then expected because Linden said he, “had to keep Betts running” … as in Scott Betts, driver of Too Sexy, a truck also built by Linden and his crew.


Mega Nitro debuted at the Mega Truck Series race at Arbuckle Offroad in Oklahoma earlier this year, but with zero track time, there were some hiccups. Linden has been working on the truck since then and we can’t wait to see what he does with it in 2016. Rumor has it… he’s coming for more of the Mega Truck Series races. Until then, here is a little more info on Linden and that truck.

How did your truck get it’s name? Truck name spurs from our other truck, it is Nitroglycerin, so of course this is Mega Nitro. The other truck named itself. We drug the old truck out of a pasture, had it siting in the shop getting ready to chop it up and noticed some writing on the roof. Took some chalk and traced it and it said Nitroglycerin, must have had hauled dynamite in previous life!
