This is called ''Run on the starter''. Don't do this continuously, you'll burn your starter motor. This can be many things, we need more informations about your car and his condition (does the engine get the fuel he need (even if you said that the fuel pump work, did you get the fuel pressure on the line?)? Spark is good? V6/V8 camaro? Did you check the compression?)

It could be that the ignition switch is not sending power to the coils when it goes back to the "Run" position.

94 and 95 had a problem with a white ignition wire breaking. Check wires to ignition switch for a break.
