Random No Start

Car has been running flawlessly for a month or so now and then randomly last night when I was leaving a friends house it would not start. Relays were clicking, fuel pump was turning on, there was a spark confirmed by friend looking in the engine bay, all the lights and electronics were turning on. The car just refused to start. Recent changes to the car were new spark plugs, replaced 02 sensors and a magnaflow exhaust. Don't think any of those could be a reason but I figured I'd add all info.

This morning I tried to start it. Started it up no problem, no hesitation first try. I let it sit and warm up. Turned it off and tried it again a few minutes after and it started no problem whatsoever again. I dont get it. Any ideas why it would out of the blue just decide not to start for the night?

Try changing the fuel filter as a first step. Sounds definately like a fuel issue since you confirmed the spark. Sometimes gunk can lodge in the filter and then another time not block the flow.
