Ok fellas i have ran into this problem never done this before so i have no idea where to start

First this is a 360 sprint car motor with Dart block ASCS brodix heads almost the same thing as a 11x head its has 14 .5 to 1 compression lunati ultra light weight crank eagle rods CP pistons

What happend the first time is after three laps in hot laps it stuck a valve in #8 cylinder ok we tore it down checked cam shaft fixed the heads checked lifters and thing possibly to do with sticking a valve

Put it back together went out the following week and it did the same exact thing as it did the last week

What could be wrong with this
The heads were done by a VERY well know builder Gaerte engines in Rochester Indiana the motor was a Gaerte origanlly and was fresened up by them also
It has the stumped also
