A proton can never reach the speed of light because it has mass. If you remember, Dr. Lavelle used a similar example to illustrate why the electron cannot be contained inside the nucleus of an atom, since its Heisenberg uncertainty in speed would be grater than the speed of light, which is impossible. You can think of this analogously.
