Are there any cases where a liability waiver can be enforced in Virginia?

They might be enforceable in a situation where the injured party voluntarily and knowingly participates in an activity that is ‘inherently dangerous,’ perhaps race car driving. A 2001 case ruled by the Circuit Court of Wise County upheld a prospective liability waiver against a car racing driver who was hurt while driving. The court stated that race car driving is inherently dangerous and noted organizers may not have such events again without a liability waiver.
