The BT records what it gets. In your chain: the dry guitar signal only.
If you want to record the distorted signal, you have to choose another setup, where the BT sits after the wet/distorted signal in your chain.

The above poster is correct. Any effects you want to hear in your recordings will have to go in line before the BackTrack.
Does this answer your question?

Like MGrd says, the Backtrack will record the signal it receives at its input, and will not record anything that is further along in the chain. In your setup, you can place the Backtrack in several positions. Here is what will be recorded by the Backtrack in each case:
1) Plug your guitar into the Backtrack Input, and plug the BackTrack Output into your Pod HD500:
- the Backtrack will record the completely dry, unprocessed signal from your guitar.
2) Plug your guitar into the Pod HD500 Input, plug the HD500 Output into your Backtrack Input, and plug your Backtrack Output into the amp FX Return
- the Backtrack will record the signal leaving the Pod HD500. This signal will include whatever processing (amp/FX) you have applied within the HD500. It will not record any additional processing that your amp may be providing.
3) Guitar -> HD500 -> Amp FX Return -> Amp Line Out (or mic'd amp) -> Backtrack input
- the Backtrack will record the sound you are hearing from your amp, including all the processing that is being applied by both the HD500 and the amp. Note that if your amp does not have a Line Out jack, this option will require you to place a microphone in front of your amplifier's speaker cabinet and plug the mic into your Backtrack Input (or use the mic on the Backtrack+Mic product if that's the Backtrack model that you have).
