Gas in Oil Pan

Anyone flood the carb and cause gas to get into the pan?
It looks like that's what has caused my new hyd lifters to start failing. We were trying to figure out why I was having valve lash issues and think the oil got trashed from a carb problem.
Anyone else have this happen?
The engine was built right and only has 1500 miles. My builder ripped me a new one for allowing the engine to flood and said in his words "that's death to an engine"
I only drove maybe a couple hundred miles with the dirty oil but I hope it didnt cause major damage.
