I think that all drivers that make it to Cup, F1, IRL, or Grand Am have the God given talent to be there. Some drivers can do things that others can't, but they are all talented if your a Tony Stewart or a David Ragan. You also have to keep working on your skills and continue to get better. What divides drivers are the little things that makes a great driver, a good driver, and an average driver. Plus that quality of cars you drive will always be a factor.
I also think you can learn to be a good driver. That if you become a workhorse and work at it and study the sport on and off the track, that you can be good. There are also late bloomers. Some people take some time adjusting to racing in the Cup series. I think you can learn the feel you need in a race car, and a good sense of your surroundings, and a good sense of what the cars around you are going to do. That is what entry level racing series are for.
