about 35 laps into a 50 lap race my engine started cutting out. its a 355 minor work done to it. the car was running mint but with about 15 to go it started cutting out halfway threw the turns(rode it about 5 laps before pulling it in). in the turns i would pump it a few times it would start back up nd still have tons of power down the straights just in the corner it would cut out.it would also back fire going in and i heard it was shootin flames out the exhaust.. what happend?

Did the seat stick open dumping to much fuel when going in the turns?

Check all your ground wires on the car to be sure none have loosened up. Battery, box, coil, starter.
