how old are the sparkplug wires? also inspect or change all sparkplugs to find which cylinder(s) missed. could be the ignition module or the sparkplug wires or crank sensor.

Could it be that doing the donuts pushed the oil away from the drip openings in the heads and you had too much oil accumulated in one area of the engine? I don't think "donut" driving was what the engineers had in mind when they designed the engine. Perhaps the gas was pulled by centrifugal force away from the injectors? I'm not to sure the type of injection system you have that may allow that to occur. If it was, it my account for the miss firing and create a vibration type feeling in the engine. A six banger and donuts?

I figured it out once I got underneath it the spark plug wire wasn't on the spark plug. I got a new one and it is back to normal! Thanks

Your welcome. Enjoy your donuts. Police love donuts so don't make too many as you'll have half the shift there watching until the donuts are done. :-)
