If we're to assume these are related, I would suspect the oil is thinned out from the gas in the oil. That can allow some lifters to bleed down faster than the oil in them is replenished. That could have been from before the oil change too. Sometimes a couple of lifters can take a few miles at highway speed before they pump up.
That by itself isn't real serious, but excessive gas in the oil will reduce the oil's lubricating properties and that will do damage to the crankshaft and connecting rod bearings. That's why whenever we repair a no-start condition related to no spark, the final step is to get the oil out with the fuel in it.
