i just had a head gasket replaced in the van and took a trip and I was on the way home and it made a popping sound I pulled over and turned the engine off and it was blowing white smoke every where and there was oil all over the road can the head gasket or even the head have blown?

There has been a fairly major failure somewhere, I would be checking that the oil filter is fight and the sump plug is fitted, the white smoke will be coolant, but the oil is a concern, don't try and run the engine till there is coolant and oil in it, and if it make an odd noise shut it down and get it towed, you will need to wash it down and check out where the oil is coming from first.
