"The Dash for Cash."

That's what the 40-yard dash at the NFL scouting combine has come to be called by some, as college football fastest players gather in Indianapolis to sprint towards a goal of playing the National Football League.

This year's draft class includes running back Chris Rainey of Florida, who has already made it clear that he wants to set a new record for the fastest 40 time since the combine switched to electronic timing in 1990. He recently told the Lakeland Ledger:

I want to show the world what I can do. I already know I'm small. You know how everyone looks at small people. So 4.1 is my goal. That's a high goal but I always set high goals. I think I can get it.

That would shatter the record for the fastest 40 in Indy, but until Rainey puts his motor with his mouth, he has yet to join this "Fast Five" of the quickest sprinters in combine history.
