Question type: Maintenance & Repair

i have a 98 stratus 2.4 twin cam, and its a racecar. first couple laps plenty of power then it starts heating up and after 5500 rpm it loses power and as im going down the straightaway their a blue flame out my exhaust constantly. i pulled in and the manifoild was cherry red hot literally. im assuming it the result of the fuel not being burnt in the engine. what could cause this bad tps? or os sensors
