A race that starts on one night and ends on another? NASCAR doesn't run that kind of race. Given that, NASCAR drivers use the same cars for night races as they do for day races, but they wouldn't use the same car for the Coke Zero 400, which is at Daytona, as they would the Irwin Tools Night Race, which is at Bristol, or the Coca-Cola 600, which is at Charlotte, because the tracks are so much different. (A NASCAR team has about a dozen cars to choose from and they're all set up differently for different track conditions.)
Most of the officials attend every race. Like any job from time to time someone will not be able to work a race. The tracks do not pay them, they are payed by NASCAR.
Currently, there are 23 race tracks in the Nascar Sprint Cup Series.
Nascar holds multiple races at several different tracks during the summer. Their July races are held in Daytona, New Hampshire and Indianapolis. In August they travel to Pocono, Watkins Glen (NY), Michigan and Bristol, Tennessee.
If it's a night race weekend, they'll run the Nationwide race on Friday night (if there's a Nationwide race at that track that weekend) and the Cup race on Saturday night. For daytime race weekends, the Nationwide race will be Saturday and the Cup race on Sunday.
Tony Stewart has not won a Nascar Cup Series race at Darlington Raceway, and Kentucky Speedway. He also never won a race at Rockingham Speedway, which does not hold Cup Series races any longer.
No. Nascar primarily sanctions races in the United States and Canada. They have held exhibition races in Japan and Australia. Prior to 2009, the Nascar Nationwide Series had one race in Mexico City, Mexico.

Nascar drivers work on Friday, Saturday and Sunday. Racing in Nascar is their job. They run 36 races, and an All-Star race from February to November. Some drivers participate in race car test sessions during the week at other tracks. Mostly they qualify their cars on Friday, practice on Saturday and race on Sunday. They have occasional Saturday night races instead of Sunday afternoon. They have one weekend off in March, Easter weekend off and one more weekend in July.
