Retired from racing after a few serious crashes and moved into the world of poker, doing very reasonably. However, in 2013, he stopped doing poker professionally full-time and returned to driving stockcars in his homeland. After a year back, he has reversed his sports and is back in poker, although he has involvement with team management in the stockcar series still, but is no longer racing. Salles was with a still-recovering Rubens Barrichello watching the San Marino GP in British TV when Ayrton Senna was killed.
