Light, a native of Edmonton, Alta, got his start in drag racing in Competition Eliminator before moving to Top Fuel in 1971. Light was a consistent qualifier and posted a runner-up finish at the 1977 NHRA World Finals in Ontario, Calif. He finished ninth in the 1978 NHRA points standings.
From 1974 to 1982, Light owned and operated Edmonton International Speedway, a world-class multi-use facility consisting of a dragstrip, a 2.5-mile road course, a 1.5-mile road course, a motocross track, and a quarter-mile oval.
Light joined NHRA in 1984 to handle business development in an area that now comprises NHRA Divisions 6 and 7. In 1986, Light took over as Division 7 director and was promoted to the position of competition director in 1987. Later that year, he was promoted to vice president for technical operations and in 1993 was elevated to his current position. He was inducted into the Canadian Motorsports Hall of Fame in Toronto in 1996.
Light, who became a member of the NHRA Board of Directors in 2004, oversees competition and operations at all 24 NHRA Mello Yello Drag Racing Series races. In addition, he oversees NHRA Field Operations/Divisions and the NHRA Technical Department, supervises the NHRA Safety Safari presented by AAA, and serves as chairman of the NHRA Competition Committee.
He also serves as president of the FIA Drag Racing Commission and is a director for the Automobile Competition Committee of the United States (ACCUS), the American branch of the FIA worldwide racing organization.
"It's a great honor to be inducted into the Canadian Drag Racing Hall of Fame during its inaugural year and to be included among the legends of Canadian Drag Racing," Light said.

Graham Light, the NHRA's senior vice president-racing operations, confirmed to CompetitionPlus.com presented by Attitude Apparel Friday the NHRA has looked into the March 13 incident.

"The best we can tell it was a long light, longer than normal," Light said. "It looks like there was a human error on our side. We (also) got the timing manufacturer involved and got his opinion."
Although the error occurred, Light said re-doing the race between Krisher and Edwards would have been challenge.
...
"You have some real challenges with re-running because it takes an hour for them to turn the car around, 45 minutes at the absolute quickest," Light said.
