Car dosent respawn probably

Okay, so I was driving a race and lost a checkpoint. However I just hept on driving, because I knew I was going to get respawned. When I got respawned, it resspawned me right where I was, and started to do the countdown again. and again. This went on for several minutes. I tried backing up, it respawned where I used to be. I tried driving forward, It respawned me further away from the checkpoint. This eventually ended in me leaving the race.

I have a clip of this if needed.

Car used: Dodge Viper (Cant remember the year)

I raced on the highway.
