This sounds like a fuel pump bleeding down. Try cycling the key as a preliminary test: When you are expecting the problem to happen, turn the key to the on postion without cranking the starter. Afte 5 secs. Turn the key off. Repeat this 3 times. This will comand the fuel pump to push fuel into the lines, (even though it should be there).
Then crank it.
IF it starts first try, you are probably looking at a fuel pump.

What is the probability that this is related to the Crankshaft Position Sensor?

If you are not getting misfire codes, it is remotrly posible, do what SW suggested, it's an easy enough test.

I did the test, the crank times signifcantly shortened. I put the key into the " on" position 8 times rather then 5 and she cranked like there was no issue. I already have a spare fuel pump since they are known to die on my model, however I didn't know that this was the symptoms of fuel pump failure. Thanks guys I appreciate it!
