weird problem with my 04goat

Hello Everyone..Maybe one of you guys can help me. Last night, i was driving home from work, i got to the bottom of the off ramp on the highway, and all of a sudden i hear a "poof" sound come from my engine and then it just turns off. so i pull to the side of the ramp..and the car just wont start...all i hear is the starter spinning..thats it. A few times, it seemed like the engine wanted to kick over, but then most of the time i just got the starting wining. Any ideas? Maybe PCM fried? No smoke or anything came from the car...oil was completely normal, and no burning smell coming from the oil..Someone let me know, im having it towed to pontiac since its under warranty...but just wondering if anyone has any ideas. Thanks!

PCM's a good guess. Maybe something to do with fuel as well -- with the poof sound being the pump crapping out.
