Adidas is offering up 1 million dollars to break the official NFL 40-yard dash record. Currently the record is held by
Rondel Menendez in 1999 and Chris Johnson in 2008 with the time of 4.24 seconds. The 1 million dollar purse is a step-up from the original prize of an Adidas endorsement deal set back in 2013. The only requirement is the athlete must wear the Adidas’ Adizero 5-Star 40 cleats, which are specifically designed for the 40-yard dash.
Quick note, Mr. Bo Jackson ran the 40-yard dash in 4.12 at the NFL combine in '86, but since it was timed with a hand timer it didn't officially count.
