Engine problem in XR6

Here's the deal: When I accelerate hard, ie: foot to the floor, in first gear from a standing start the car will take off and will reach a certain rpm perhaps 4500rpm and then it will just slow down gradually revving, the auto doesn't even try to shift. To make it shift I need to release the pedal a bit. Is this normal? it never happened in the ED GLi I had driven.
