I suspect that your spark plug wires or your distributor is going out. Check your spark wires and distributor. To do that take out #1 spark plug wire from the spark plug. Next take out your spark plug then put it in the spark plug wire. Then turn on car and take a look at the spark plug to see if it's getting a spark. Do this with all the spark plug. If it is your spark plug wire I would replace all of them.

If it is getting fuel and spark, the only other things it requires is air and compression-You may have an engine so flooded that it won't start in spite of it having fuel now. You can try holding the gas petal to the floor while cranking it, it will dry out the intake and cylinders, but it is best to do this in short spurts and have a battery charger or jumper cables connected to the battery while doing this. Remove a plug to see if it is soaked-if it is, you might want to consider removing all of them and drying them off. While you have a plug, or plugs out you should be able to determine if it has god compression by cranking the engine, the open cylinder will 'pop' as it reaches top dead center if it is alright. Check to see if your oil is unusually high-could be diluded with gas that has washed down the cylinder walls. You can also try to spray some starter fluid into the throttle body, even if the plugs are wet it should try to start if it is getting spark.

Its pretty hard to test the fuel pump relay. Easiest way to test fuel function is at the motor from the fuel rail. There should be a high pressure fitting (similar to a tire valve stem) that you can push in to check for fuel. It should squirt out (fuel) if the pump is sending fuel to the motor and if not start back tracking looking for fuel pump/pressures/leak issues. If you decide to replace the relay then I would suspect $30-$50 or find a decent on at a junkyard. The relay should click when ignition is turnerd so u know its working properly.
