What would cause....round two

Okay, this is my truck now. I was driving around town with a few friends in the bed and they start yelling stop, your truck is smoking. So I get out and take a look from under the motor and I see that my oil pan gasket has been blown out. What would cause that to happen? I was thinking that my PCV valve might be blocked and that would blow it out, but I don't think so by it self. It has been missing lately on one cylinder and ignition repairs had no effect on it, could I blown compression ring cause a miss? I have to pull the motor to fix it so if there's news, I can replace it soon. Any help would be great.

Did you possibly pour too much oil into the crankcase. Too much oil can build up pressure and blow it out

No, I don't have any blow past the PCV valve, but I haven't run a compression test yet. I might have overfilled it, it was leaking slightly and I put two quarts in without thinking.
