It was not only the track community noticing the success of the VA Showcase this month. Two weeks ago meet management made us at MileStat aware that The Virginia House of Delegates passed a binding resolution honoring the success the VA Showcase. This resolution honored the meet for the impact it has had both on track and economically for the Commonwealth's societies.
