DELETE FROM tblTrack WHERE fHitDate < getdate()-180
delete from tblTrack where fHitDate < adddate(curdate(), interval -180 day)

I guess there are many correct ways to do this, here's another:

delete from tblTrack where DATEDIFF(now(), fHitDate)>180
Another one is :

Delete from tblTrack where DateDiff(day, fHitDate, getdate()) >180
