The third sentence just describes the situation of the race, and the first and second sentences are the result of that situation. they are all common in spoken Korean. 그는 경주에서 두 번째로 들어왔어요. 그러나, 그는 부정출발을 했기 때문에 순위에 오르지 못하고 실격되었어요.

The first, second are a bit more formal, and the third one is informal and spoken. \^o^/
