    The general rule is, first or worst is the loser. Even if you didn't know he went red and chased him down, the race was OVER when he lit the red bulb. Sounds like you got screwed big time. Your win light in your lane should have come on as soon as he lit the red light and you're the automatic winner.

    red is dead

    First red losses. Unless its a test and tune, than it does not matter if you go red or who wins.
    I think you got screwed

    The other guy going red, and winning, could cause a lot of red things to happen.
