Despite the 2014 edition of the MileStat.com Elite Track Classic facing a major obstacle created by Mother Nature on Friday with severe storms in the Richmond area forcing all of Friday's events to be postponed and rescheduled to Saturday, the meet was able to fit in all of the new events for day two and still finish only an hour beyond the original projected finish for day two. A long and jam-packed day of high school track & field action for Virginia's largest high school outdoor track & field invitational at Sports Backers Stadium saw a total of 77 MileSplit US national elite performances and a total of 6 meet records broken in the sixth annual event.
